    Don't ever tell me to look for the silver lining

    I've just been disappointed with yet another fruitless attempt of finding a friend online. And yes, it was a certifiably waste of time because it was brief. It wasn't lasting. Finding friends is very hard, and doing it online is the only way I can do it. I'm not going to approach someone if I...

    Everything is always very negative. You always hear about schizophrenics hurting or murdering people. On television programs and newspapers they always use “psychotic” in the wrong context. You never hear about the vast majority of schizophrenics being good, caring people that experience...

    Here is the link to a very positive article on BPD

    Researchers have found that people diagnosed as borderline are also uncannily empathetic and sensitive to others, although they may struggle to rein those feelings in.

    The theory of positive disintegration

    I’ve been reading about this and thought it’d be worth putting up. A short summary: Basically the theory says that as you explore the dilemma’s inherent in being, you will encounter various problems leading to neuroses. By resolving these problems you either put them to rest or if not, store...

    Is it reasonable to cut toxic people from life with no warning?
