How old are you?
I've had that sense most of my life but especially so in the last ten years. I'm 51 ... It's been getting worse as I get older, perhaps. Discouraging, as personalities are supposed to set somewhere long before now aren't they? Or is that just habits and traits, is personality the same thing as identity? Do you have steady work? Is your identity involved in what you do to a satisfying degree? Do you have family? Is your identity in your family somewhat? What if all your family disappeared, would you still have an identity? What if your work was gone, what would your identity be then, who would you be?
These questions can plague one so much that one becomes more and more form-less, more ethereal while still in the skin.
It's scary.
Is this what it means to be borderline? If so, how did I get to sign up on this shift, lucky me?
