Yes, well your comments have helped me immensely and I even saved them so I could reread them. Life is not easy, and having BPD makes it that much harder, and being triggered by Narcissists and Sociopaths even more triggering, complex, and despairing.
As a BPD, I’ve always had difficulty understanding my own identity and thus I would pick up other people’s identities because it was the only way I knew how to exist. So, if I want to be heathy, I need to be around healthy people so I pick up healthy identities, and not mean-spirited people. When I pick up mean-spirited people’s identities, it makes me feel very unsettled, miserable, a stranger to myself, and like a foreigner inside my own body- because this is not me.
I hope this makes sense…
