Default The BPD Check-In Thread #7

The other thread is almost at post 1000 so I started a new one now so we can still post our check-ins.

Had a pretty good day. Anxiety was under control.

BPD girllfriend left me, im confined together with my army mates. unlucky week so far.

But it made me realized that i'm growing stronger and more resilient emotionally when these setbacks hit me.

Although I reflected i could have done better to salvage this shortlived r/s, I decided to let her go

I'm sorry about that. You did what you could and there's nothing wrong with that. You should be proud that your growing stronger.

The day was pretty good. Was able to get a workout in. Not the way I wanted but better nonetheless.

I'm struggling to let go of what my idea of a perfect parent is. Various therapists have said to me its good for my daughter to see that I have feelings but as I never saw that my mother had feelings its hard for me to believe that.

It is important for kids to see your feelings so that they then know it is okay for them to have feelings/emotions. Being a mom is hard and letting go of that perfect parent image is so hard, I still fight with it.

Happy birthday!

Today was a good day. Kept everything calm, which is what I needed.

I'm letting my daughter see my anger today: I'm listening to my Ludacris station. Usually I get on her case for listening to hip hop. Its actually good for our relationship because she can rap along in the background as she knows words to some of the songs and I know words to other of the songs and sometimes we both know the song.

My mother and I never got down together.
