TW: Discussion of Suicide and Self Harm

In this deeply personal opinion piece from The Pitt News, author Breanna Jones discusses their journey with BPD:

“It is extremely difficult having thinking patterns and feelings that make you perceive yourself as worthless. Having self-hatred so strong that you cannot imagine anyone truly enjoying your company also adds to it. In addition to this, it is hard trying to judge every social cue as something positive or negative. Most of the time, I take things very personally or the wrong way, which leads to even more self-hatred and paranoia of being abandoned by those who we love.”
