Book Review

Have you ever received a letter from a dear friend that touched your heart? Have you ever read a story that was so emotional that you could not help but feel every word that was written?

I Choose Victory: Find Light In The Darkness Of A Life Changing Crisis by Haseena Patel is a novel that will make the reader feel. When I first started reading this book, it felt like a personal letter from a dear friend. Haseena Patel fills the pages with heartfelt encouragement to her readers. She encourages her readers with positive quotes from prominent writers, speakers, and influential public figures. One of my favorite quotes in her book was written by A.A. Milne that reads, “If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together, there is something you must always remember, you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think…” It’s a powerful message. And no wonder that Patel would use this quote in her book.

Patel’s book is based on dealing with family crisis. She tells of her experiences with helping her sister through a chronic illness that threatened her sister’s life. It’s a heartfelt story of struggle, positive change, growth and finding purpose in life through weaknesses and strength.

I’ve learned by reading Ms. Patel’s book that no matter what crisis you’re faced with, you can overcome. With hope and purpose you will get through it. You must choose to be victorious.

Black & White Thinking – A symptom associated with BPD – Borderline Personality Disorder

Loving1today: Loving1with Black and White Thinking.


This is contributed by community member Fee Johnson for Loving1withmentalillness.com

Black and white thinking is one of the classic symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Black and white thinking is characterized by the following statements:
“I love you”
“I hate you”
“Stay with me”
“Leave me alone”
They push you away, then pull you back in. You will find these types of behaviors in relationships with those who have BPD.

There is a lot of polarized thinking while living with BPD. The sufferer has to be perfect and good, or else they are bad. In their world, there is to be no in between. Even one mistake, no matter how small or trivial, can make a person with BPD feel as if they are a failure and do not deserve to live.

When you care for someone who has BPD, this can sometimes be confusing, and hard to deal with. In order to support someone with BPD in becoming more stable in their emotions, help them settle these extreme thoughts and behaviors.

It is important to recognize the symptoms and behavioral patterns to find an in between. Instead of giving into the extremes of the black and white thinking, you can help the person with BPD find areas of grey. Understanding, patience, and empathy are needed.
You can help guide an emotionally unstable person to a place where they can accept that one mistake doesn’t make them bad. The world is not black or white and good or bad. Therefore, we can appreciate the shades of grey and thus help balance our lives into healthier directions.
