I can learn to say no nicely? Lol LikeLiked by 3 people Reply Hmm… it think you can if you manage to relate that “no” with the wellbeing of that person. He/she will certainly understand.

To turn that into a strength would entail being strong while I learn the skills to regulate my emotions and never give up.

Until the majority of the skills are mastered, there is suffering through what would be deemed bad experiences and overwhelm through what would be deemed good experiences. Because of these extreme emotions, many people with BDP experience depersonalization and disassociation as a coping mechanism. Both good and bad emotions are so painful that there is an extremely high suicide rate of those with BPD. It takes a huge commitment, dedication, and a lot of work for those that have BPD to reach recovery. LikeLiked by 1 person My biggest weakness is my anxiety,. It’s held me back a lot in my life, but I’ve found that by writing about it and being honest about it, I can connect with and even sometimes help others who deal with the same issues.

LikeLiked by 1 person Reply So training that decision making “muscle” can help you turn that weakness into a strength. That’s great! 😀 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply My biggest weakness is probably looking for distractions. For me, I guess using writing as a distraction would make me more productive. Thanks for using this question 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply That sounds like a useful distraction 🙂 My pleasure! LikeLike Reply Practice! Practice whatever that weakness is over and over and over again. For me, it’s going to be working on my blog daily. I have this tendency to work on it constantly for two days then take like four weeks off. It’s time to change that. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Daily work on a blog is a challenge, but it’s doable. I guess it depends on what you’d like to achieve with your blog. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
