3. Feelings of Emptiness

Ongoing feelings of emptiness are common in those with BPD. It can seem as if there is a void inside of you that nothing can fill, a hollowness in the very core of your being. Such a void is uncomfortable and unsettling. You may try to fill the hole with things or destructive behaviors.

Sometimes people try to fill the void with food, alcohol, drugs, or sex. Nothing is ever enough, however, and a temporary feeling of satisfaction soon vanishes. The chronic feeling of emptiness never really goes away and can drag you progressively downward.
