It’s high time we put the most enduring myths about human behavior to bed, and see the mind—and the world—as it is.

This is exactly how I feel. I have always, since elementary school ( I am an adult in my 30's who has been formally diagnosed with BPD), had the fear that literally every single person does not like me and is one faux pas away from lashing out at me and rejecting me. I project my own negative, horrible thoughts into the mind of others and imagine they are thinking negative, horrible things about me. If there is a worst case scenario, that is where my mind goes, immediately, and that is what I react to without thought. Everything everyone does to me and says to me can be misinterpreted as sinister and a sign they do not like me. I love this new approach to the disorder.
