Splitting

Updated: Apr 10

Someone said once about me that I was seemingly experiencing "Schizoid splitting"; this was at the beginning of my psychotic break.

Splitting refers to a specific way of seeing the world in 2 extremes, dichotomous, black and white. (In Borderline this leads to the Love/ Hate split that is so volatile for relationship).

In SPD framework, people are regarded as either safe to be with or unsafe. This is the core of the split and how it plays out externally depends on the person and the situation they are in.




So I assume I have split close people as unsafe.

Say this is the case, it would lead to strong anxiety, which in this latest ...situation... turned into a disconnect from reality as it seemed too overwhelming.

I disconnected from myself (dissociation) and from reality (psychosis) to cope with a threatening environment.


This is why crushes don't go well for me.
