others? As a result, we do a lot of stuff that isn’t exactly healthy. It was at this point I realized I couldn’t carry on the way things were. Having someone like that really gives you the strength to push yourself forward, but the dependency is awful. I spend more time trying to keep up with the conversation so I spend less time second-guessing what he says and does. So, don’t expect a beautifully written letter in calligraphy informing you of your FP status. I would get really distressed when John would cancel plans. I never thought I will have a favorite person.
It's not that different from my own approach, but when I'm in a crisis it's all forgotten and I do or say things I regret.
It takes up every cell of our being and it’s impossible to do anything else but that. I know from being an FP that I did everything I could to be there for them. This is the most important one to me for a simple reason: We are both human. You may constantly be referred to for advice for everything — from the very small to the huge. I’ve been more aware of my emotions and actions lately, and I see it coming with my current best friend. But when he would ask me if I was OK or what was wrong, I’d lie almost every time because I was scared he wouldn’t understand, or he’d judge me. But, my friendship with John is now stronger and healthier than I ever thought possible. Happy new year to you as well! I appreciate reading about your experience, I’m 41, in the same boat. It takes up every cell of our being and it’s impossible to do anything else but that.

It means you're not there yet.
Some people revel in the idea of being an FP. I became so scared he’d stop being my friend that I started changing who I was, what I liked and even how I looked to try and fit into his life better. Terms, I’ve had my borderline personality disorder.
May 2019 bring blessings and growth for all of us!
You don't go and "find a new fav".

Ugh. Common with borderline personality disorder (BPD), it’s often that someone has a minimum of one FP, but a person can have many.
Put in boundaries, saying what you are comfortable talking about/helping with and what you aren’t. I always expected John to be honest with me, but I wasn’t honest in return. Omg I never did extensive research after my diagnosis and didn’t know that this had to do with that up until this moment . You can’t force yourself to be someone’s FP and it takes a lot for someone to suddenly stop seeing you as their FP. Oops! Especially if they do or say things to trigger me.
Having a long term best friend, ghosting them, meet someone new, distance myself, repeat. If there is silence and there has been some form of altercation, and I can’t logically think of a reason why they aren’t angry with me, so I’ll assume they hate me.
Others, however, will be subtle. Put in boundaries, saying what you are comfortable talking about/helping with and what you aren’t. I can de-escalate my instinct to start an argument, stop myself saying something I don’t mean and generally come back with a much more logical response. This will give you room to grow, and be able to live your life without her.
However, it can get annoying. Omg I know the feeling.
Having a long term best friend, ghosting them, meet someone new, distance myself, repeat.
This is a very grown-up way to deal with it.
Wether you just find a new job, a new hobby, a new friend... that is better than clinging to one person and expect them to save you from everything. As a result, we do a lot of stuff that isn’t exactly healthy.
Jealousy is a big thing people with BPD have to deal with because when we feel, we feel completely.
And I’d constantly reread or play our conversations over in my mind, internally analyzing his responses, looking for signs of rejection. A big thing about BPD is seeking approval and having an inability to maintain and regulate emotions and healthy relationships. I’d had close friends, even best friends. This is is a nice place, help us keep it that way <3, Press J to jump to the feed. Sometimes, I misjudge situations. So far this coping method has worked for me, but sometimes (like around my period) it may be harder to control my emotions around certain people. You probably won’t be told that you are their FP. Recently, I’ve been stuck without an FP, but I’ve also been an FP which is a weird sensation for someone with BPD.
Having a favorite person isn’t always easy. Either sending a few extra messages or asking when you do respond if you love or like them, perhaps even if you are mad at them. If I sensed he wasn’t OK, I would ask him what was going on and get pretty upset if he wouldn’t tell me because I immediately thought it was because of me.
That is taking pressure of the fav and makes you more independent. I'm currently in the process to understand how destructive the whole thing can be.
unless you just hate everyone you're always likely to have a FP. It was a huge step for me and at the time felt like a massive risk. It'll be a lot of work. I know it's hard and scary to be your own person sometimes but it's a lot healthier! But instead of beating myself up or being angry with him, we talk about whatever has happened, draw a line under it, forgive and wipe the slate clean. At the end of the day, the most important person to you is you and that’s what you need to focus on. 1. Exactly what I’m looking for. It appears you entered an invalid email. I know from being an FP that I did everything I could to be there for them. I used to just fly off the handle without a second thought and it would almost always end up in an argument.
When you are an FP, there is very little you can do that we perceive as wrong.
Then we started spending time together and the more time we spent together, the more I learned about him.
Once the relationship isn't as it used to be or your life changes and you become more needy and toxic and you maybe lose this person, it's the worst thing to go through. I didn’t want to lose this friendship completely but I also needed to find ways to control the impact it had on me.
However, I now use the time we spend apart to go out and do things instead of wallowing in my sadness. 2020 Mighty Proud Media, Inc. All Rights Reserved. I love her but I’ve hurt her because of these extremes and I want to stop too.
Not so much.
We are living proof that favorite person friendships can be rewarding and fun.
I think the better question is “how do I become my favorite person?”. Editor’s note: Names have been changed in this piece to protect the identity of the individual. Well, that’s interesting.
I ask why I like this person. Make sure that before you take care of someone else, you are able to take care of you too.
But that wasn’t healthy for either of us.
That's the way to do it. It just takes a little time and work, but I promise, it’s worth it! Assumptions are the devil when it comes to having a relationship with a favorite person. Except perhaps invoke jealousy by spending time with others, or not answering messages. At the end of the day, the most important person to you is. You will just end up having the same problem over and over again. Firstly, I focus less intensely on him when there are others around. My long-term relationship masked how bad I deal with loneliness and now I'm 40 years old and go through the same emotions as a teenager. ©
With this in mind, I created my own ‘golden rules’ for keeping my FP friendship healthy: Spending too much time with anyone isn’t healthy. Also, I’ve always wanted an older brother who I can share my secrets with and talk to every day and annoy every day. It won't. You can do no wrong… except perhaps this….
Spending time together with other people has really helped my friendship with John for a couple of reasons. You need to look after you first and any aggressive behavior isn’t safe, nor fair, for you.
I can get so caught up in how I feel in the moment I overlook the rational and head straight for impulsive reactions. But don't actively repeat your mistakes.
I just thought that was a weird quirk I had.
I give myself some days or weeks of just focusing on me.
Today for example I told myself that I will take a break from the church I had been going to for a while. It's alright when it happens that you find yourself in a situation like that again. Either to hear you say, “you did the right thing,” “I’m so proud of you” or “Here’s what I think you should do…” Don’t be surprised if you are constantly getting messages or phone calls about the fact that they need your help with something that you think they should be able to decide for themselves. I guess that means a behaviorist or DBT therapist. Thanks guys. Having a clear plan of when we are going to spend time together helps me plan stuff to do to keep my mind busy when he isn’t around and make the most of the time we do spend together. It can be an incredibly stressful thing to understand and even harder to gain any control over. Through this, we have found that my fiancé and John actually get on really well which is great because it means I can spend time with both at the same time. I understand in theory how it should feel like, but I'm completely desperate.
I’d see him at social gathering and we’d have the occasional chat, but nothing of any real depth. I’ve been more aware of my emotions and actions lately, and I see it coming with my current best friend.
There is no exact science to having a healthy FP friendship, just like there is no guidebook on how to be an FP.
So, sometimes I forget my own rules and sometimes John does or says something that upsets me. I’ve had my borderline personality disorder (BPD) diagnosis for around three years now, but its only within the past few months that I’ve experienced one of the common challenges people with BPD face: developing a “favorite person.”. If they reach out to me I tell them I'm taking some personal time. This way, I have things to tell him about when I do see him again. Any advice?
But, I had no need to worry because he’s been fantastic about it. Sadly, the best advice I have it...find a new one because that’s typically what happens. It appears you entered an invalid email. It's so bad. I get so attached and infatuated with a certain person so fast. Terms.
I can make mountains out of molehills and cause storms in teacups with ease.
Thank you thank you thank you for this.
Have floating favorites Another tip from Dr. Newman is to become cognizant of how you act towards all your kids and to shift your attention from one to the other, at different times. Privacy
Now, some people will get aggressive, in which case, get out of there now.
4. Oops! When John wasn’t around, I would feel abandoned and convince myself I’d just never see him again and he hated me.
| This also means avoiding websites that talk about this fictional world. When you are an FP, there is very little you can do that we perceive as wrong. Get a therapist who can teach you to validate yourself. | I need that reassurance that I am OK.
