Negative videos seem to be going up about borderline personality disorder, specifically therapy, healthcare and mindfulness. I think that because so many people (professionals included) talk negatively about BPD, those of us who struggle with it can feel like it's hopeless and helpless. The truth is that BPD is something you can overcome! Yes it is a lot of work, but if we don't like how we are feeling then we have to do something about it to change it. Right?! It is my opinion that BPD is caused by either a lack of attachment to a primary care giver (mom, dad, grandma, etc) when we are a baby or it is caused by trauma. The attachment struggle can later lead to us trying to "fill" that need by other people in our lives, while also feeling scared that they will leave us too. So we want people around, and we want love and support, but we also fear that we can't trust people to be there for us and so we often try to push them away or even run away ourselves. Trauma can also lead to a lack of trust or feelings of safety. Therefore, our emotions can sort of "come out of nowhere" and we instantly feel scared and unsafe. Both of these situations lead us to feeling scared, not safe or trusting of those around us. That will make relationships very difficult. But does that make you a bad person? Absolutely not. I hope that you found this video helpful. Please share!! Because the more positive and accurate information we have out there the better. xox Videos about BPD: https://youtu.be/zPopjuKuweg https://youtu.be/E56S5cWSvuw Video about DBT: https://youtu.be/hDJi86n9-Rk Video with Hannah! https://youtu.be/KIBiRsK7uBA Website http://www.katimorton.com A BIG THANK YOU to my Patreon Patrons!

Lanner Cooper: OMG. Thank you so much for setting things straight about BPD. I love the fact u spread the truth about it. I was abused by a psychiatrist because he hates people with BPD, probably because he was mislead about this mental illness.
Hosoi Archives: Lol people with bpd are terrible indeed
Alex Says Hi: +Kati Morton ty so much I’m so confused about myself and I just think that I have adhd or probably bpd. I’m sure that I have bpd because I feel lonely, have done self harm, guilty about the past, sometimes impulsive, a bit irritable, thoughts of suicide recently, low self esteem, and I have anxiety. I want my mom to take me to a therapist because I just feel unstable, like I feel a bit happy and then I go to being sad. I just need help.
Amr Metwally: I dealt with a girl who has BPD. I have ADD and no stranger to abnormalities. I researched BPD like I did with ADD several years ago. I tried all the ways to make her feel good but the closer one gets the more she hates said person.
After 10 months of on and off (I gave her a 5 months break) trying to make things work with her, I came to the very sad and unfortunate conclusion that 99.999% of non BPD in BPD relationships, RUN & DON'T LOOK BACK.
If they are aware of their actions, in treatment, and are serious or change, then there MIGHT be hope...
You Therapy: Alright, Kati! I so appreciate this video. I work with so many clients with this diagnosis, and you’re right, it’s this name calling and lack of self compassion which is prevalent and causes more suffering. It’s such an incredibly painful set of symptoms to endure, and kindness to oneself despite everything one is bombarded with, is so difficult, but so essential. Thanks again!
Anime Dreams: Hogwash
David Digital: I will be honest, if we were dogs we would be put down. I have been dealing with it for 52 yrs and I can promise you we are dangerous and a threat to society.
Warrant Officer Rios: I know I have BPD based on everything I've heard till now. If I listed everything that happened to me and how my family treats me because of it then you might cry. I can tell you one thing about my past, a small thing. I used to cry myself to sleep almost every night since I was 6 years old. I remember hearing my family laughing and playing in the front room while I cried under the blankets in the dark room. They still ignore me like how they used to and now they actively mock and torment me about it.
Alida Bailey: Any thoughts on Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy? Since often times BPD is related to childhood trauma, it seems lik with PTSD or CPTSD it could help regulate emotions and not just train people with BPD to behave better.
H Jager: I have BPD, and it's truely annoying that everywhere I look on youtube I see negative shit about BPD. It's not fun to have BPD, so please don't let us feel worse then we already feel.
Perfumaphilia: I have BPD, along with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem/self-worth, OCD symptoms, and complex-PTSD. I'm sure some of those things are inter-related. It's an absolute nightmare and sometimes I wish I had the guts to end my life.
Alma: Where can I️ find the book you were holding ? Thank you !
Steve Wright: Thank you for the recommendation on the book.

synchromorph: A person can develop C-PTSD from dealing with borderlines, especially "high functioning" borderlines in positions of power.
synchromorph: Soon after I was born, I imprinted on a ping pong ball as my mother and upon entering puberty, attempted to mount it.
rain dew: You are very naive
polly10022: Thank you I really needed this. No one understands what it's like, people always say I'm oversensitive but I just can't set my emotions aside when I'm "triggered."
Awweable: Katie can you please suggest an online support forum?
