    1. Hmm… it think you can if you manage to relate that “no” with the wellbeing of that person. He/she will certainly understand.

  1. I feel like I could hold damned hands with @natalie like while I said stuff, which was really just aDM saying stuff for JS or god to notice.. lol

  2. 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.. 🙂

  3. 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.

  4. My biggest weakness is my anxiety,. It’s held me back a lot in my life, but I’ve found that by writing about it and being honest about it, I can connect with and even sometimes help others who deal with the same issues.

      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

  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.

    1. Daily work on a blog is a challenge, but it’s doable. I guess it depends on what you’d like to achieve with your blog.
