Success Stories: How I Gained Control of my Life

Posted by   on Pinterest

Many people find when they are frustrated, angry, and at their wit's end about an abusive, out-of-control partner, parent, or child who seems to exhibit borderline personality disorder traits. Some are dealing with a partner who has left them and they are in deep despair about the situation. Some have been struggling with misery, abuse, the cycle of good times and bad times for months or even years.

However, there are many members of our BPDfamily forum who consider themselves "Success Stories". Some have managed to stay with the bpd person in their lives; some have moved on. But all have worked their way through the morass of misery, depression, anxiety, and lack of control that they felt as a result of these relationships.

The "Success Stories" Workshop is their place to talk about their journey out of pain and suffering to a productive, balanced, and happy life. If you are struggling you may wish to read their words of comfort and wisdom. BPDFamily has many members who have found their way through the maze... and they are happy to share their insights with you!
