There is reason to have optimism that Borderline Personality Disorder does not have to be
a life sentence.

There is reason to have optimism and hope about creating change in your life if you have Borderline
Personality Disorder. It is important for those with BPD and those who are family members, loved ones, ex or relationship
partners or friends of those with BPD to note that no one can change or rescue someone from Borderline Personality Disorder.
The person diagnosed with BPD has to want to change and has to seek professional help to find that process of change that
can lead to the road to recovery.

Generally, optimism is defined as actively believing
that good ultimately prevails over evil and refers to expecting the
best possible outcome of any circumstance or experience.

Given that not all of us have agreed upon definitions
of what "good" and "evil" are one can only be optimistic to the degree
that one has defined this personal philosophy of measured "good" and
measured "evil" within their own belief system. If you have not given
these opposites much thought I encourage you to do just that now. Too
many of us, for way too long in our lives, borderline, or not, just
take at face value what we've been told "good" and "evil" mean, or are.
How many people have been given poor definitions of these terms by
rather unhealthy and or unbalanced people? It is crucial that you think
about your own values and philosophy where the concepts of "good" and
"evil" are concerned.
