  • casual sunday // staying at my boyfriends house because I don't wanted to be alone when I do my questionnaire for my appointment at the psychatrist tomorrow. It's another appointment for getting into the dbt programme. It's tough for me to answer such deep questions about my mental health today. Yesterday I had a horrible day because intoxicated myself with alcohol, again. If you're here you'd probably remember my post from last year about the first time this happend. And now it happend again and I feel so terrible. I once made this dumb mistake, that could have coursed more than puking all day. It's very dumb to drink alcohol if you're on medication. I thought I would be responsible enough that this wouldn't happen again. But I made the mistake a second time. As said you learn from your experiences and it makes you smarter. I reached again a point where I should care more for myself and don't let the my disorders taking over me. Excessive drinking is one of the symptoms of Borderline. You don't know your boundaries. I was a long time ashamed of it, because I'm ashamed of the person I turn into when I'm drunk. It's the worst me I can imagine. When I drink too much I lose every kind of responsibility for myself. I don't know when it's enough until the point I start to loose control over my body. Then I realize it's time to go home and preparing myself for the horror of the coming. When I have the hangover everything get's insane, my body completely surrender and my mind is getting out of control. This is when the borderline hits hard into my life. On these days my disorder wins and let me feel like the biggest depressive loser of the world. But I survived one of these days again, but I feel exhausted. Because after these days I realize how much this disorder can control me. On most of the days I think I'm on a good way to live healthy with this personality disorder and I kinda loose the feeling that it affects the way I am. But after such an experience I realize how much this disease can control my behaviour and how fast I can turn into a horrible, manipulative side of me. I'm very reflective on my borderline disorder but on some days it's hard to live with it. ⬇

  • We are super excited that Girl Like Me returned to St. Rose of Lima’s Primary school this week 🦋. During this session we started to share the emotions girls experience throughout their day and the triggers of these emotions. Girls were open and honest about this and described how ‘not having breakfast’ or ‘been shouted at by older siblings’ can effect their entire day.
    On the flip side, the also said that having the freedom to ‘sit beside their friend in the classroom’ makes them happy and actually helps them ‘try harder’ 🤔. In the coming weeks, we will explore the triggers of our emotions further and how we can challenge these triggers in a positive way so that we can help manage our emotions ❤️. #TheWarriorEffect

  • MORNING POST:
    So, over the last few weeks, I've posted a couple of FB statuses, Snapchats, and tweets about mental health and why it's such an important play of people's growth.
    There's a reason to that.
    It's because despite trying to stay strong for Candice during this hard time in her life, it's still at times a massive burden to carry.
    I don't wanna make her situation sound like it's about me, because it isn't, but I feel it's something that needs to be addressed... My own stubbornness and refusal to confide in others has made my personality kinda change and I've noticed that over the last few weeks.
    There's no nice way to say this, yall. After talking to Candice, it's clear that I may need help from a professional for depression.
    I'm combating this early and I'm gonna beat these feelings. I don't wanna let myself self-destruct and I refuse to fail the people who mean the world to me by giving up on them.
    I love yall.

  • The  #DunningKrugerEffect  (also known as Mount Stupid or Smug Snake), named after David Dunning and Justin Kruger of Cornell University, occurs where people fail to adequately assess their level of competence — or specifically, their incompetence — at a task and thus consider themselves much more competent than everyone else. This lack of awareness is attributed to their lower level of competence robbing them of the ability to critically analyse their performance, leading to a significant overestimation of themselves. In simple words it's "people who are too ignorant to know how ignorant they are". The inverse also applies: the unusually competent people tend to underestimate their ability compared to others; this is known as impostor syndrome.
    .
    .
    The Dunning-Kruger effect is a slightly more specific case of the bias known as illusory superiority, where people tend to overestimate their good points in comparison to others around them, while concurrently underestimating their negative points.

    Symptoms include:

    tend to overestimate their own level of skill
    fail to recognize genuine skill in others
    fail to recognize the extremity of their inadequacy
    recognize and acknowledge their own previous lack of skill, if they can be trained to substantially improve.
    .
    .
    There is no fixed treatment for the Dunning-kruger effect however, giving feedback for the individuals suffering from it might give them a better understanding that they're wrong. Therapy sessions also help in terms of showing them that they're wrong. It's a very serious matter that affects not on the person dealing with this effect but the people around him.
    In our case, we have the 'Dunning-Kruger' president.

    Did you know any of these information before?
    Do you know anything else that should be added?
