I Hate You--Don't Leave Me - Part 5

This chapter really made me think about how hard it may be, or is, to have relationships with other people. Whether they be friendships, business partners, lovers, or any other types of relationships are difficult to have if the other people involved are not informed of bpd or any other disorder. It definitely could make your life that much harder to live on top of having a disorder. I am trying to not worry too much about this but ignorance is not bliss. Therefore, I do have to acknowledge what is going on so that the people around me can get educated. I have also come to the conclusion that if the people you are around are not educated then you will never have that relationship that you really want. They will never really know or understand who you are. That thought can be scary and I feel like I have been there. The best thing, I think, is to become fully aware,  educated and then acknowledge what the reality is because if you don’t you are not any closer to being or feeling happy. You have to be honest with yourself at least of what is really going on. - Dear
