What It’s Like To Have Traits Of Borderline Personality Disorder

BORDERLINE PERSONALITY DISORDER TRAITS

The other day when I was in therapy
I found out I have some traits of BPD
Yes, hints of Borderline Personality Disorder
In addition to full-blown anxiety and depression
Talk about messy!
Let me tell you how it affects me

BPD’s why I struggle with idealism
See the world as I think it should be
Instead of what it is
Such a perfect recipe for disillusionment

It’s also why I cut people off very quickly
See, I put someone on a pedestal if I like them
When they do something I think is wrong
They fall in my eyes, often irrevocably
And I struggle to value them thereafter
Black and white thinking is the name of this malady

That’s all, the list ends here
Merely two traits, such heavy repercussions
Can’t imagine having the entire disorder
How unsettling and difficult it must be!
My heart wills me to be more empathetic
If I come across someone who lives with all of it

  1. BPD sounds hard to live with. The traits you have are seriously tough to deal with. More power to you for writing about it to spread some awareness!
