Mood – Feeling accomplished
I’ve been doing some ‘soul searching’ and really trying to take my life by the balls. One thing I struggle with is not feeling like I have any purpose. I think it’s a common feeling amongst people with BPD – having no sense of self, who am I, what am I doing here etc. So I stumbled across ‘Personal Purpose Statements’, they are what they say on the tin. A simple statement that you feel is your purpose in life. Now, it’s absolutely solid working out what your purpose is anyway but that’s OK, plus, it might change and adapt over the years as you’re exposed to new experiences and gain new knowledge.
I’ve found the whole process of working it out and penning it quite satisfying and it actually has given me a stronger sense of what my purpose is! So I’ll count that as a big win. I’m not naive enough to think that this will be me on the straight a narrow forever but as long as this statement is online and set in stone I can refer back to it.
This is my Personal Purpose Statement:
“To make my life as easy and stress free as possible. The world is hectic enough, we’re only here for a finite amount of time so lets relax and enjoy the ride. Things are only as stressful as you believe them to be, I hope to spread this positive outlook to others.”

Why don’t you make your own 🙂
