    yeah us borderlines get so mixed up in our own overwhelming emotions all the time that we sometimes forget we’re not the only person going through it

    That’s literally one of the hardest things we go through, we have a hard time comprehending emotions from others, it takes a lot of effort to get to the point where we see everyone else as equals

    Yes and same I also have a bad habit of trying to take care of everyone including my husband I remind myself, out load, that's he an adult as I'm frantically leaving my house trying to make everything perfect before I leave.. for him Like, he's an adult. I don't know if that'd be helpful for you to do. It might be helpful for me to remind myself that people are other people Hmm. You gave me a good idea 💡🙂 thanks 🙏🏻 namaste ✌🏻💕☺️

    This happens to me a lot in crisis situations. When a friend comes to me with an issue or they are upset I can be said to be rude or harsh or distant bc in my mind the situation is an easy fix or not a big deal etc and I don't quite get way they are upset in the first place
