In Defense Of The Borderline

The longing gaze of a borderline

Some say Borderlines are misunderstood and I agree.

I can remember people calling me sick claiming I was doing what feels good which would be me being impulsive or making emotional choices.

However, if you were neglected and therefore not educated you have no facts to draw from, just feelings.

In my experience people think of borderline’s as being bad.

I’d like to say that they aren’t.

I needed to be understood first and foremost.

Second I needed compassion.

Third I needed an education.

Once those three things happened I began to get better.

Punishment only made matters worse.

When I was younger, I would try to cope but then got punished for the way I was coping.

It was a vicious cycle.

So yes, for me, the answer was understanding, compassion, and education.

That was my cure for borderline.

Borderlines have a heart of gold, hurt very badly, are loyal to a fault, and are also very devoted.

Doesn’t sound bad to me.
