Coping with Losing Your Favorite Person (while living with BPD)

A QUICK REFRESHER ON THE ‘FAVORITE PERSON’ (FP)

GETTING YOUR MINDSET RIGHT

  • Let your former FP know that you’d reach out when you are ready but to please not contact you, otherwise.
  • When your friends ask you about your former FP, let them know it’s a sore topic and you’d like to change the topic.
  • Block their phone number, unfollow from social media, temporarily.

STAYING SAFE AND NOT DOING ANYTHING STUPID

  • I love online chatrooms because it gives me an outlet to talk to others, anonymously, without being judged.
  • Hang out with other friends that you haven’t talked to in a while.
  • Do something you used to love, before you met your favorite person.
  • Go thrift shopping (so you don’t spend too much).
  • Take a shower.
  • Take a nap.

HEALING IS NOT LINEAR

DON’T WAIT FOR SOMEONE TO SAVE YOU
