About this deal
Stop perpetuating stigmas. Mental health stigma remains the number one reason many people do not get the treatment they need. Worrying that you will be viewed or treated negatively by family, friends, or society actually keeps you from getting better. Feeling shame about your illness or isolating yourself because of it perpetuates stigma. The only way to overcome this stigma is to build your knowledge and self-confidence about your illness by getting treatment.

Sometimes, you even hide it from yourself. Thus, you appear flat and un-emotional. This is very different from the ‘dramatic’ expression someone with ‘classic BPD’ may exhibit. People think that you are doing well, and may not reach out as you struggle in isolation.
There are two specific reasons why: we’re afraid of being judged, and above all, showing our vulnerability. Because in this ruthless world it’s the strong personalities that win. The ones that put up with everything, don’t complain, and instead are models of optimism and self-confidence.Fix your issues. Overcome your faults. Integrate your pain into the better individual you are becoming.
