How Having Borderline Personality Disorder Can Affect Your Friendships

Finding people who are willing to learn about BPD and accept you for the person you are, even during your dark moments, is the key. According to Jasmine, forming healthy friendships when you have BPD just take a little more time.

‘It takes time to know who you should surround yourself with because you should surround yourself with people who bring out the best in you, and who bring out the real you. When you have BPD you don’t know those things about yourself.’ Although I still end up constantly crippled with anxiety about how I’m behaving with my friends and whether or not they really like me, I’m learning to get this under control.

I tend to confide in a couple of trustworthy people including my partner about my episodes, and I don’t take any sh*t from anyone who tries to make me feel like I’m not good enough because of my diagnosis. People with BPD don’t make bad friends. We’re just slightly more complex than the average.
