Could this be considered a BPD trait?

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well. Quick question, could this be considered a BPD trait?

In my head, I just had a bad hour in work towards the end of the day, to someone else the mistake I made is not as bad as I am making out. But to me, it feels like the end of the world.

Suddenly I have this urge to download a dating app, something I have sworn off forever but right now I feel the need to connect with someone, just to feel validated.

I'm not going to download the app because I hate those things, instead I'm going for a nice bike ride.

Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

The anger is so intense, I feel with mixed with lots of sadness and frustation, consequences = autodestruction. Is the feel that I know how to feel in next day or something.

Yeah i am with you. I overthink sooo much and it hurts me.. it’s so bad especially with work and at times I may even ask to just ease my worries if it’s bad enough. For example.. I have low confidence in myself and this is with all that I am and all that I do. For months I felt I was going to be fired for not being good enough. I asked my manager are you going to fire me I feel I’m doing terrible. And she said I was amazing and the best person on her team that I had nothing to worry about. Because of situations like that I try to have more confidence although it is hard. But I worried for months ... all to find out that it was for nothing. I’m still employed there and this situation was about a year and a half ago. Still at times I feel I’m going to be fired.

Thank you wraziel and Riah3, it's interesting to gain some insight into BPD.

For me, my biggest thing in work is the ongoing suspicion that people in work, particularly my bosses. are talking about firing me when they get together. It's quite narcissistic and I keep telling myself that every conversation that takes place is not about me.

The other problem I have is when I make a mistake, it feels like the end of the world. I have suicidal thoughts, along with ideas of self harm.

My moods swing can swing quite consistently in work, sometimes I am this cocky guy who fears nothing to the polar opposite, to a feeling that every tiny misstep I make is one step closer to walking over a cliff (metaphorically).

It's difficult for me and worse for people who can't understand. I psychoanalyze my every move, down to the needless parts. I can agree with seeking people constantly, it has a push-pull effect. You want people just as much as you resent them.

Hello SicklyBloom,

I totally agree with you about being around people, especially when it comes to relationships. When I'm in one, I pretty much want to be left to my own devices. When I'm not, I just can't help but think how much better my life would be if I were in a relationship.
