That is an horrific event, and I am sorry to hear that it happened.
Thanks for your comments.
And for reading some of my writing on BPD. You are right about the lens of a mental illness. There are many times I feel very dis-empowered, emotional and out of control.
But over time I've learned to accept these feelings and manage them better (not perfectly but much better). Not dwelling on the bad feelings that you get almost every day. And the complicated situations those of us with BPD get into almost every weekend as well.
Observing these negative thoughts, feelings and judgments. Acknowledging them, accepting them and letting them go. Or at least trying to (it is very difficult). Thinking for myself, being who I am and making up my own mind. Doing what I feel comfortable doing, not just what I feel obligated to do out of fear or guilt.
Hope that somewhat answers your questions/comments.
