With BPD I always feel like I don't know who I am. I always feel like I'm mirroring other people and taking bits and pieces of them with me.. does anyone know how to get to know yourself better/ have a healthy relationship with yourself?

      I completely relate. I had to isolate. In a healthy way i think. Lol I found activities that i could do for free and alone and that challenged me. I go kick a hacky sack alone, it something physical that clears my head dndv i can progress in

      I'm still trying to do this. I try to make myself just go out and do things and try to make the distinction if I'm doing it because I like it or because I got the idea from a favorite person or a character I'm fixated on at the moment. I find the more spontaneous I can be with something the greater chance that it's more core personality (whoever that is) that likes it.

      Oh my God it's like you read my mind. I could've written this.

      I really feel this quite a bit. My solution was to force myself to do the things I like alone. Find interest or hobbies of my own, no matter how difficult, and do them without the presence or validation of others, no matter how difficult. The big thing for me was forcibly removing the external validation, even though it was super difficult. That's not the answer for everyone but it was for me.

      Same, I've been screaming so loud inside. It's like feeling trapped and emotionless. No one understands what I say.

        @BeanBetter I just feel like I don't know who I am and I don't really have anyone to talk to so I'm just trapped. I feel like I am going to shut down or explode
