I really need a place to get everything out.

Let me start this off by saying I have been diagnosed formally with borderline personality disorder. It's a fancy way of saying my emotions have not grown up with me. I am 22 years old and I had a very neglected childhood full of fear and instability. As a result, my entire life is driven by fear.

I am full of anger and hurt. I have loved a woman for 5 years. She is the first person I have ever loved. She is also 30 years older than me. She has a very stable life and has stuck by my side all this time through terror and through me pushing her away because she knew that I could make my own life better and be truthful and real. She believed that I could make myself okay and she supported me. But I have been a horrible partner to her. I lie constantly. I use other people in life just to have someone to fall back on because I'm always waiting for everything to fall apart.

My mom left me when i was 7 for two years, and then again when i was 12 for 4 years. just completely disappeared. So I believe most of my instability comes from abandonment. constant fear. I can't shake it.

Anyway, My partner... my love.. she left me. because I have destroyed her. I am angry. I am angry that she stayed and created this attachment i have to her. I am angry that she is telling me what she is doing. I am angry that I didn't have the guts to drop all of my emotional defenses that i am constantly using and just be the person she loved. She is my life and now she is living a carefree life and I am not a factor in the decisions she makes now. And it is tearing at every part of me. I feel like I will never be able to love another person because I believe I will do the same again.

I don't love myself, I have absolutely no emotional support in my life. I am 22 and I have a job but I have no car or license. I have no friends. I have no one who truly loves me and I don't even deserve it.

There was one month of this entire 5 years that I started feeling better about myself. But I was still not being a real person to the woman I love.

I want her. I want to own her and that is the reality of it. I use people. I could have loved her if i had given in to everything i'm afraid of.

I need to know what to do. I have nowhere to turn. I am in the darkest, most lonely place I have ever been in. And for once in 5 years, she doesn't care. not even a tiny bit. She is focusing on making herself happy.

I guess I am not truly mad at her. I am angry at my mom. I am angry at everything that brought me to this place. I have had this woman who loves me for 5 years and I never gave anything back.

Where do i go?

It's silly that you don't know me, don't even know half of the story, and you feel that you can judge me.

You didn't hear the part where she was 49 and i was 17 when she and i fell in love. the year after my mother came back from her little trip. You didn't hear the part where i desperately for 2 years tried to cut off all communication from her and she did everything she could to pull me back in. I was and am emotionally attached to her for a lot of reasons and 5 years contains a whole lot of information that you couldn't get out of a few paragraphs. I came here because I feel that I wasn't a good partner to a woman I love. I came here to spill out what i was feeling because I literally haven't had a soul to talk to besides my journal.

I appreciate your opinion but as someone who has studied my past in order to understand why I create situations that repeat my childhood... and as someone who has gained insight and hugely changed my behavior, and as someone you honestly know nothing about, I will have to suggest that you think before you spew out self righteous judgement.

I am sorry to hear about your difficult experiences. And with what you have been through, i'm certain it's affected your behavior in many ways. And i'm not unaware that everyone has a choice in what they do. But I would not judge you.

Thank you again for your input. however nonconstructive it was.
