Hey! First time poster here, so sorry if the formatting is weird or I’m not doing a kind of forum-tradition.

To start off, I do not have BPD, my boyfriend does. I love him very, very much, and want him to be aware of this. However, he struggles to believe it, and we are both searching for a way to help him believe that I do indeed love him. He feels unlovable, and that I could never love him, so therefore he can’t believe that I do, even though I very much do love him. I do my best to research and understand BPD as best as I can, despite not having it. I try my best to be there for him as much as I can be, too.

It breaks my heart, and I wanna hep in any way that I can. Would anyone happen to how we can work towards helping him believe I do? What’s the first step? Where do we go from there? Do any of you guys have similar experiences?

I think all you can do is just keep telling him ,I believe eventually he will understand it is true xxx
lots of reassurance would help ,which it sounds like you are already giving x
