BPD splitting destroys connections with its tumultuous waves of idealization and hatred. These waves crash heavy into the survivor’s favorite person.
Have you ever been in love? So in love that they are all you can talk about, all that you can think about? Love is so wonderful, they make you feel full. They make you feel loved. But then something happens and nothing you do is right. You keep messing everything up, each criticism is a nail straight through the coffin. The heartbreak rages within as the paranoia swirls mindlessly down deep and we are spiraling now. BPD splitting is the cycle of love and fear endlessly repeating through all of time.
Mentally Ill Art illustrates the unraveling of a mind and the lead-up to it’s breakdown. It is not for the light of heart, but for those who have struggled. One who is in the throws of mental illness is caged within their lack of control. Therefore, their moods and perceptions overwhelm their behaviors. In effect, no one sees the person when the illness takes center-stage, bowing as it twirls and nosedives the survivor’s entire life into chaos and destruction. Psychiatric facilities are operating at full capacity as suicidal thoughts are sweeping over humanity. Fear riddles patients who scream and laugh and weep. By visualizing our neurotic symptoms through surreal expressionism, we come to face them. When facing them, we begin a conversation. This conversation leads to healing.
