What side of the brain do you use?
The interaction between both is a game of volleyball, a confusing element within its features, a comprehensive account of our genetics and memory processes…
Skills are what motivates us. Experience is what shapes us. Atoms. That’s all we are atoms.
I thought I’d do a post after seeing a post on Facebook about a kind hearted young girl taking her own life because of borderline personality disorder caused by abuse.
I just want to point out the effects of borderline personality disorder and how it may impact on caregivers:
- BPD are loving individuals
- They are not dangerous
- They are warm and caring
- They isolate themselves when they feel too overwhelmed, they become angry when they are afraid
- They experience extreme mood swings when faced with interpersonal trauma and/or distress
- They think with their heart
- Its one of the most commonly recognised personality disorders
- During a crisis the sufferer loses control – as a result this can lead to suicide or intense emotional reactions to triggers that relate to the sufferers interpersonal traumas.
- They have problems interacting with others and dissociate to mask their inner pain
- They feel lost and abandoned the majority of the time
- If intensely bullied/abused may experience delusions and hallucinations
- Is often confused with Histrionic Personality Disorder, dissociative identity disorder, bipolar disorder, ptsd and narcissistic personality disorder.
- It’s not a label, it’s neurological and affects the areas of the brain responsible for controlling mood
- Creativity, drama therapy and music therapy helps with restoring the individual to a normal level of functioning
- Can affect relationships and are at risk of further abuse
- Are often criticised by the healthcare professions who don’t understand during a crisis the illness can take over the mind of even the most high functioning borderline
- This needs to be removed from the personality disorders category because it’s the only personality disorder to have the highest suicide rates and personality disorders start before the age of four -bpd is the result of abuse.
I thought today would be a productive day to sip tea, focus on what I could do to relax and began flicking through a book called “Emotional Intelligence” by Gill Hasson.
One quote from the book which really caught my eye and inspires me to write more was written by Paul Cezanne:
“Genius is the ability to reknew one’s emotions in daily experience”
Im renewing my emotions. I’m filling myself with more ideas, more opportunities, collectively and in alignment with my core personality.
Another quote which really questions how I perceive my environment is from Anais Nin:
“We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are”
The outside world is shaped by our perceptions. We are able to predict what could potentially happen without any evidence beforehand. How is that so? Why are we the only planet with life? Why is there never an ending to the universe? How has life formed on one planet with synchronised body clocks and a sun and a moon to let us know when to sleep and to wake. What is the purpose of life? Have we forgotten who we were? Have we ever been so thirsty for money we have forgotten to see the beauty of the world? Life is an amazing source of imagination that is endlessly questionable.
