  1. Not sure I have a particular “weakness” nor do I have particular “strength”… it is all part of the “whole” and that whole works as one.. 🙂

  2. Being someone with BPD means that I have an emotion dysregulation problem. To turn that into a strength would entail being strong while I learn the skills to regulate my emotions and never give up.

      1. One of the skills is be mindful and enter into present experience. 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.

      1. It’s a weakness when people who find it easy to spark conversation at will about anything; I choose to speak when I have something worth discussing, otherwise I’m an intuitive person who valued listening before anything else

  3. I can turn my biggest weakness into a strength (like making decisions) by making small ones daily and build up the confidence to make bigger decisions.

  4. 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 🙂

  5. 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.
