A new way to be

Just recieved this text from a friend:

“So far, the disorders we have described have traditionally been
considered syndromes, which – like physical illnesses – are not
part of people’s basic character structure. When treated appropriately,
these syndromes usually remit and people return to
normal functioning, at least for a while.
But personality disorders are different. They are disorders of
people’s basic character structure – so there is no ‘normal functioning’
to return to. The personality disorders themselves are
people’s ‘normal’ way of functioning, and appropriate treatment
means learning entirely new ways of being.”

    1. It sure seems that way. When I’m in a mental breakdown it’s super present again. Or when I’m triggered but now, most of the time, it’s more like voices in the background and urges that I need to let go off instead of responding to them. It can be difficult but not impossible.
