Things You Need to Know About Being Emotionally Unstable
For some people, being emotionally unstable might not be such a life-threatening disease, that it is just a matter of perspective. That a person who is feeling down needs to find a way to be happy and look at the brighter side of life. Some people also blame stress from work, family, or basically life itself.
The truth is, it is actually way more complicated than that. Being emotionally unstable can actually be pretty dangerous because if it is severe, people who are suffering from it will be most likely suicidal. However, people are having a hard time trying to find out if they are actually emotionally unstable or not, since it might just be stress from work or they are simply having one of those bad days. Here are a couple of things you should know about being emotionally unstable or having a borderline personality disorder.
WHAT IS BORDERLINE PERSONALITY DISORDER (BPD)
Having a borderline personality disorder is actually worse than just having a bad stressful day at work. It is like having a feeling of being on a roller coaster, not just with emotions, but also with relationships and within yourself. The way you view yourself, other people, and the world, tend to feel different every single time.
If you have BPD, you are most likely to be extremely sensitive to everything you hear, sometimes even if the person you are talking to is not saying anything wrong, you mind will twist their words and you will get offended, or you may say something out of line as well because of your overpowering emotions. Here are some more signs that you should watch out for.
IDENTIFYING THE SIGNS
You have a hard time make decisions
People who are suffering from BPD normally has a hard time making up their minds. They would sometimes make a decision in an impulse, and would often change their mind right away, they often doubt their own decisions.
You have extreme mood swings
Another obvious sign that you might be suffering from BPD, is that you are having some extreme mood swings, this doesn’t just happen within yourself, this also affects your relationship with other people.
Such as being around family, there will be times that you will all of a sudden feel as if you are just so happy to be with them, and then a few moments later you would feel as if like you cannot stand them at all. Little things could make you smile, and sometimes you just don’t care.
You feel empty
This has got to be one of the most common signs of BPD, that feeling of emptiness is just so extreme that it could lead to self-pity. People who feel empty inside would often think that they are totally alone in this world, with no one to talk to or to lean in, they would also feel as if nobody needs them, and that they’re just nothing and it wouldn’t matter if they exist or not.
You try to self-harm
Finally, some people feel the pain so much that they simply couldn’t bear it anymore. Self-harming is like hurting yourself without having the intention of actually killing yourself, it is just a way to actually feel the pain elsewhere since it is already too much to handle.
If you think that you are indeed emotionally unstable that it is actually starting to affect your everyday life, then it is time for you to get yourself checked. This is the only way you can get yourself treated because physicians know what needs to be done, and they would also be able to tell how severe your case actually is. Keep in mind that there is nothing to be afraid of, you are going to get better only if you let yourself get help and if you let yourself get better.
