Borderline Personality Disorder

Hi! I'm not sure if I should be asking this question here, but I just... You know this community is so open-minded, I think.
Sorry about (maybe) off topic, but what do you think about the necessary to tell your friends and colleagues about who you are and how do you feel.
I had a lot of situations where I actually hide my real reaction, so now I just look like person who didn't care about anything. But I do care.

I would tell people, but only if they deserve your time. I've had similar experiences and I've learned that not everyone cares or wants to know who you really are so why waste time on those people.

I feel in many cases in life, it's important to be honest with ourselves. It's about not submitting our opinions to others before they've criticized us. If those around you cannot accept you for who you are, it's definitely time to reevaluate your boundaries around friends!

I totally agree with you! My real-life experience gave me a possibility not to judge 🧝🏻‍♀️
Thanks for your your reply, so nice to meet you!

Not sure if this would help you, but I consider the personality just another layer of what we commonly known as "human mind". The personality is the constant cycle of how we react to certain scenarios and actions in our lives. In other words, I consider the personality as the combination of single and unique events that each individual has lived in its own life, and from those he/she will react in the event of some something.

The personality is constantly changing, even when the people is stubborn. Otherwise we wouldn't learn from our mistakes.

The psyche is very complex, I'm not an expert, but that's what I think about it. We all change once something marks our lives, and from that particular event we will think differently, and eventually act differently.
