    The more I educated my boyfriend, the easier things got for both of us. I explained all my symptoms and things that trigger me. I also started taking responsibility for my symptoms. So, if I had some sort of outburst, after the fact I would tell him I'm sorry and that it was inappropriate/ he didn't deserve it. I'd explain how what led me to react the way that I did and how I planned to prevent myself from reacting like that in the future. I also vowed to go to therapy at least once per month and work on it. The cool thing about BPD is therapy can actually get you to a point where you no longer meet the diagnostic criteria for BPD anymore

        It's definitely tough for people to understand especially if they've never struggled with mental health issues. Hopefully, he's willing to try and learn more about the condition and be supportive 🤗
