      Needing my identity to solely be based on how well I treat other people and what they think of me 👍

      Definitely lost sense of self for me. Apparently I cover that part well, my mother has always told me I've known exactly who I was since I was young... But just about every part of me has changed depending on who my favorite person was. I hate not knowing who I am, not having my own thing.

      For me, the worst is being so reactive and fight-or-flight that it makes getting through the day very difficult. And basing my entire life and decisions off of other people cuz I don't really have my own opinions, just a desire to be validated if I make others' proud

        @Floppa434 this❤️ well said, I felt this. The only thing I'd like it add is the fear of splitting on someone I love or more specifically my favorite person. I have twice when I was undiagnosed, and I still beat myself for it years later

      Feeling unloved and abandonment issues 😥

      I think for me the worst part is the identity issues: not having a clear sense of self, not knowing my own goals/values, or feeling deep down that I am "bad"
