I have read research which indicates that provocation based rumination triggers a reward mechanism in our brains as people with BPD. I kind of get that because when I do it excessively there is this kick which comes with it despite how distressing I might find it. It’s like i’m gonna find some new answer that will solve it all which in my experience is total BS. I’m just more emotionally wasted at the end of it.
