Your Bpd Only Has Negative Side Affects, You Can Harness Positive Aspects From It.

We aren't like this for no reason. What positive aspects can you pull from your BPD? An animals ability to adapt to its environment is probably the single biggest factor in its survival. For me, aspects of BPD seem like they stem from a sort of ULTRA adaptability. I am the type of person who can really do anything, and I usually do it pretty well the first try. I've worked so many different jobs, and I feel like that is partly because I can constantly rebuild my self-image to suit whatever role is necessary.

Every person I talk to gets a slightly different voice/persona, its always well adapted to the target and the result is always positive, I never fail at job interviews and my bosses/professors always love me/expect me to excel and always have.

So while this mercurial sense of self can be negative, and leads to BPD behaviors, it can also be a huge advantage. In the past, when I've overcome my BPD for periods of years, it was done by USING this mental flexibility and fluidity, and constantly molding it into the person I wanted to be. As a BPD, you can be ANYTHING and EVERYTHING you want, most people cant adapt like use it to your advantage, use your flexible self-image to rebuild yourself positively, rebuild a version of yourself that cant be negative or sad, or self-pitying. You are actually in much more control of your persona than most normals, they cant recreate themselves so easily. You will undoubtedly fall apart after rebuilding yourself, just remember to keep rebuilding the same house, every time you do it, it will become stronger and stronger, and eventually...this will all be a thing of the past.
