Thank you

Mollie, As someone who has been struggling with BPD for the last 2 to 3 years the one thing that my crying at the beach by myself reading all the books I could take in didn’t do was make me feel like I wasn’t alone if it wasn’t for your podcast I don’t know where I would be right now in my journey to hear personal stories and how other people can relate to how I feel and I can relate to how they feel makes me feel so much less alone that I just wanted to tell you everything you’re doing is absolutely amazing if it can get through my thick head itself I can’t imagine how many more other people you’ve helped you’ve helped me understand so much about BPD and the label. I’m newly sober and if IT WASN’T for your podcast I can honestly say I would probably still be hitting the bottle. I just want you to know I appreciate you and am so lucky to have found you when I did. Thank you for everything you do ❤️


A breath of fresh air

Mollie, I just want to say thank you.. the biggest warmest, heartfelt, truly sincerest of thank yous. I was diagnosed about ten years ago and had a minute when I was feeling ok, and I lost focus on my tools and started forgetting the things I had fought so hard to relearn. As chaos breeds chaos lastly it all came crashing down. I feel lost, defeated, like a failure, and most of all scared that maybe I didn’t have any hope left this time. I dusted off my up dbt workbook, took out my flash cards, and my fave book of ref (The Mindfulness Solution for Intense Emotions: Take Control of Borderline Personality Disorder with DBT) and went to search on Spotify and found you. In the past I had searched for a podcast like yours, and had came up empty handed, so I was excited to listen. Now it’s become one of my own tools to help my recovery. I listen all day at work, and on my way home. I’ve begun drawing cards everyday, I have taken so many things from your podcast - and had so many aha moments, and the best moments of all; the ones where I finally felt that someone could relate and understand to this wild ride I’m having in life. If I’m having an especially bad day, I know if I get on the train and put your podcast in my headphones I can start focusing on healing rather than spiraling into my depressing song playlist and starting off the day with splitting. You’re truly an inspiration and I admire and live what you do, don’t stop. You’re helping so many who have felt or feel lost, and that my friend is a beautiful thing. Take care of yourself!


.

I have learned so much from your podcast it really is helping me put my knowledge about bpd and techniques into application, which for me is the hardest part. But I am so grateful for all of your time, research and energy you’ve put into this! I know I will never have to feel alone in this bc when I come back to the podcast I am reminded that we are all fighting for the same thing and growing along the way together. You tha best Molly, don’t stop what you’re doin!


So much love!

Finding your podcast has been nothing short of a miracle! Diagnosed w BPD in May of 2021 at the age of 46, after a year in therapy due to my husband literally kicking me out due to my behavior and lack of tools on how to deal w my sisters suicide. My daughter committed suicide in October of last year and your podcast has been a God send! I listen to you all day long, literally! While I run, workout, at work, at bedtime. ALL THE TIME! Along w Dr Fox’s BPD workbook I’m digging deep now and realizing that my daughter had BPD as well. Working through a lot of guilt on that one. But your show is a main staple in my tool bag of learning how to live in this world that is so shitty and living w out my daughter. I don’t think you realize the impact that you make on peoples lives. Your voice is so soothing, I can’t go back to the any of the other three post casts I was listening to. You are such a beautiful soul and I know that my higher power, my Lord and Savior lead me right to you! Love all that you do! God bless you beautiful girl!


You changed my life

Hi Molly I’m Kuri I’m 30 years old and the first time a therapist ever uttered the word borderline personality at me I was 13. My life has been an insane ride and I found zero relief within Therapy or myself. I’ve been listening to a podcast for a few months now and I am officially the most stable and happiest I can recall being in my entire life. If there’s anyway we can email you or connect with you please let me know as I’d love to be a part of an episode !


Wow, I’m not alone

First, Thank you so much!!! Thank you for sharing your story! I have never related with another human in my 32 years of existing. Everything you talk about! I’m like “ wow, yes..yes.. me too” I get it… top viewer here! Proud of you girl :)


Thank you 🙏🏻❤️

Game changer :) Appreciate you.


Deeply transformational, safe and encouraging

This has been so profound in my journey of BPD. I feel so grateful to have this and can honestly say it has been so affective in how I have been dealing with such hardships in my life right now. A life saver. Thank you.


Thank you

I was diagnosed 8 years ago border/polar and to me the border side was misunderstood and rejected. I took it as a multiple personalities and ignored the diagnosis. Fast forward to now and I am starting to realize the havoc and toxicity that it causes. I’m starting therapy and your podcast have giving me strength to keep moving forward. Thank you. Cheers


Thank you

Thank you so much for this podcast. It is such a blessing, so so helpful, and has given me a lot of hope❤️


Eye opening

I've spent the majority of my life not understanding why I feel this way, why my life is always falling apart, why I am always self sabotaging. I was "diagnosed" with BPD in 2015 after an attempt and hospitalization after a break up with my FP, but I've identified with BPD since I was a preteen (I just didn't know it ). After another horrible fight that I caused with my loving and supportive fiance a few months ago, I realized that I WAS THE PROBLEM and I needed to change. Just like you mentioned in the podcast, that moment of realizing you are the problem without shame and self hatred, but more of AH - HA, I realized I needed to change. Your podcast was the first one I listened to when I searched "BPD splitting" in Spotify and I have been hooked. I listen in the morning while I'm making breakfast, on my walks, in my car, even with my partner! I've learned so much about my self through your experiences and it made me feel understood. I didn't even understand what I was feeling but you are so well-spoken and helped me understand that I AM NOT MY BPD. My therapist noticed my sudden commitment to change and self understanding, and when she asked what happened that gave me the sense of clarity I told her that your podcasts have been helping me tremendously! She loved the idea that I was listening to a podcast centered around recovery and said she would suggest podcasts to her other clients. You've made me uncover feelings I never knew I had, help me see that I am not alone, and that we can recover. I am optimistic about my recovery because you've shown me that I am not a lost cause and I can get better. Thank you truly from the bottom of my heart.


This podcast saved my life and helped me feel whole again.

I first found this podcast over a year ago after I first discovered what BPD was. It helped me feel less alone. I was on a 6-9 month waitlist for DBT therapy, and couldn't find an individual therapist that fit my needs AND budget. I just needed SOMETHING to help; I had no hope otherwise. It was a silver lining for me. I went a few months without listening to it (not for any particular reason), but one day, when I was spiraling into a deep hole of constant suicidal ideation, I decided to listen to it again. I'm able to listen to music and podcasts while at work, so it was a great opportunity to dive back into it. It became my lifeline; whenever I'd feel those overwhelming feelings, I'd just put on an episode of the podcast and it helped ground me. The episode that truly helped save me was the one called "Are you 'mentally ill' or spiritually starved?" I remember I almost started crying at work because it had touched me so deeply, like Mollie had reached out to hug my inner child and say, "It's okay. You are loved." I listened to it twice that day, and changed my phone lock screen to one of my favorite pictures of me as a kid, like Mollie suggested in that episode. That episode, in addition to my partner, pushed me to start my own spiritual journey, something I had never felt compelled to do before. Before that, I was strictly atheist/agnostic, and was so empty and traumatized inside that I found it hard to believe in anything at all. I didn't pursue any specific religion, or even read any specific books; I just opened up my heart and wrote down my thoughts. I began to see the world differently, finding meaning in even the littlest things. I feel like I reached a checkpoint in a video game (Mollie, I know you'll appreciate this metaphor lol), a checkpoint where I will never fall back to what I used to be, even if I slip up. I think this is what so many other BPD treatments and resources lack. I learned DBT, and it's helpful, but it's a survival tool, not the answer. Because of this podcast, I don't feel empty anymore. It's crazy because I feel whole for the first time since I was a child. Of course I still get triggered and split, but at baseline, I feel whole. I feel hopeful. All my friends and my partner can see the change that this has had on me, and I love sharing parts of the podcast with them; I've recommended it to all my friends who struggle with BPD symptoms as well. This podcast is also just so well-rounded; Mollie covers a WIDE range of topics, and her guests always add so much to the conversation as well! I love hearing the perspectives of everyone from professionals in the field of psychiatry, to those of her partner Zaz. It feels warm, like sitting in a room with friends, but Mollie also doesn't coddle you. I appreciate her helping us hold ourselves accountable for actions so we can grow from them, instead of just wallowing in self-pity like some BPD communities tend to do. Her perspective is very refreshing, especially when it comes the idea of eliminating the idea of a "personality disorder" in the first place. If I could suggest one thing to improve, it would be gender inclusivity. Mollie definitely tries to be inclusive of trans/non-binary/gender-non-conforming folks, but I think she could improve some of her language used. For example, "people with vaginas" instead of "females," "people" instead of "man or woman," "people perceived/socialized as men" instead of just "men," etc. However, this is just a note for Mollie and doesn't detract from how I feel about the podcast as a whole. Anyway Mollie, I just want to thank you with my whole heart. You are such a treasure in this world and I hope you know that everyday, you help people and give them hope to keep going. Even though it would be helpful, I no longer think I NEED therapy to survive. Your podcast has shown me that there are other things that can help me, and I will be okay. We will all be okay. Thank you, thank you, thank you.


Just wow

When I tell you this podcast has saved my life, I mean it. This makes me feel like I’m close to Mollie and the community of listeners. Thank you for your time for all your content!! I’ve progressed so much in my recovery journey and I’m so thankful that I found you. I was hesitant subscribing to premium because I was already paying for group DBT but it’s the best decision I’ve made! Honestly, I’ve been able to self reflect so much thanks to you Mollie!! I don’t get tired of listening to you- You are loved ❤️❤️


Feeling grateful

So very grateful to discover this podcast (recently diagnosed with BPD). Couldn’t stop crying today and was able to compose myself through listening to episode 1. Can’t wait to keep listening as I journey through this struggle (and overcome it). Thank you for your work. It means more than I can say.


Better than therapy

I found this podcast hoping to learn how to better use skills in situations where my unhelpful coping mechanisms came into play and found that the show relays information that hits so much deeper than just the day to day skills. I’m really grateful that Mollie discusses spiritual aspects to healing and shares her own experience and voice as well! I look forward to listening to every episode especially the premium content! ❤️


Endless Gratitude

This podcast is so verge powerful and empowering. ALL will benefit from the insight, vulnerability, and community. Love love love to you!! This is life saving.


Life changing content

Mollie is so inspiring, uplifting, informative, and relatable. I am so thankful I discovered this podcast. I have gained so much from her content, most importantly a sense of hope. I highly recommend subscribing to her premium content. It is worth every penny.


Necessary good

I need it. You need it. If we are here looking for this there is no better resource. I have found then the soothing stories of folks who have gone through so much of the same stuff I have. A world with BPD can feel very isolating, confusing and scary. This podcast has been a balm for my soul well into my 30s.


Mind Blown

I cannot express enough how this podcast has truly opened my eyes to BPD and the struggles i constantly deal with. I was diagnosed last year and had no idea what it was, i did my research, i have a therapist that helps, im starting DBT in a month but little over 2 months ago i found this podcast and i am blown away by the accuracy. It has helped me so much in my times of struggle when i feel myself splitting, becoming impulsive and/ or really just not understanding my feelings at all. Looking for deeper understanding, knowledge, advice and just knowing I’m not alone in this is so refreshing. Mollie you are an amazing soul, thank you for being our voice!.


Informative, inspirational, an act of love

Like a lot of other listeners - this podcast came across my path when I needed it the most. For those who relate to BPD symptoms, one of the things I think most of us want desperately is to feel understood. This podcast does that, even though we don’t know Mollie personally - it feels like having a friend who knows all of the difficult things you’re going through in your life, researches the most informed ways you can help yourself , and presents the information in a refreshingly relatable way. Her whole-person approach covers so many avenues that I wanted to research but haven’t had the time - I just wanted to say that am so immensely grateful. I can’t recommend this podcast enough.


absolutely beautiful

i found this podcast when i was in such a dark place in my life. i was struggling with a new bpd diagnosis and i was totally shocked by bpd stigma, which seemed life-shattering to me. i thought i would be forever labeled as broken. when i found mollie and this podcast, my view of myself and of bpd changed fundamentally. mollie has taught me so much about acceptance, spirituality, recovery, trauma, and more. also, her voice is so calming and listening to the podcast feels like chatting with a friend. i am so thankful for this podcast. mollie, you have truly changed my life, and the world is so lucky to be able to learn from you and witness your growth.

infinity stars

authentic and relatable with such amazing content. feels like i’m talking with a best friend! i’m on my third day of binging your podcast and about to sign up for bonus content. thank you so much 🖤


Unbelievably Good

I am at a loss for words for how wonderful this podcast is. I am just sorry it took me awhile to discover it. Wow. If you have the traits or someone you love struggles with borderline traits you cannot go wrong listening to this incredibly informative and validating pod.


This is amazing

Thank you so, so much for not only presenting your vulnerability, but also different perspectives and tips to approach BPD! Appreciate this podcast so much!


42yo CIS man diagnosed BPD/BP2

I love this podcast and your perspective on our shared experience as people struggling with and recovering from BPD. I have often experienced therapy/DBT and other forms of treatment for my diagnosis’s as gendered towards the treatment of women. I think that is normal due to the fact that the overwhelming majority of people I have been in the therapeutic setting with identify as women or are non-binary. I find your approach to BPD recovery to be just what I need as I move out of DBT and into the next phase of my recovery. It feels behavior focused without the constraints of gender or even diagnosis. I was hitting a skills and therapy wall and see the need to continue to expand in order to continue toward my goal of actualization and conscious living. Thank you so much for your dedication to yourself in order to offer insight to others.


Unbelievably Comforting

The best way to describe this podcast: Mollie’s words kept me from t*king my own l*fe. I listen to BFTB on my way to work and at night when I’m falling asleep. It’s my safe space, Mollie provides a comfort zone for me. I’ve listened to every episode numerous times, and there’s always a new takeaway. Mollie is a constant reminder that BPD is not an end all be all. It goes beyond mental health. It goes beyond diagnosis. Mollie provides words of encouragement and guidance to a healthier mental lifestyle. This podcast saved me.


Relatable. Admirable

Listening to this podcast makes me feel hopeful. Just heard episode 47, and I’m excited to be along for the ride! Thank you so much for creating this!! Was headed into a real depressed mood so I took my dog out to sunbathe by the trees and decided to listen to your podcast. Saved me from a sad day!


Thank you 🙏🏻❤️

I’m a new listener. You’ve given me a lot of hope.


Beautifully disruptive, in the BEST way.

I’ve recently had the epiphany that I most likely have BPD, as I have experienced every symptom, and listening to this podcast helped me realize that. I’ve been in therapy for 10 years and always ended back up in the same place thinking something must be seriously wrong with me that no one can fix. Mollie and the guests she’s had on Back From the Borderline has made me feel seen in a way I’ve never felt seen before. It made me realize that there are people out there like me, and I’m not alone. Others experience the intensity of emotions, the self harm, the fear of abandonment, the explosive anger, the constant identity crisis.. all of it. I’ve never felt so much relief in my life. Not only that, but Mollie has saved me from going down a well intentioned, but ultimately detrimental, path of seeking a BPD diagnosis. I have always felt that diagnosis's are limiting, and certain ones such as BPD are seen as a lifelong disease that can never be rectified. Only accepted and suffered through. I wholeheartedly disagree with this. I believe (like Mollie) the only reason we get any sort of diagnoses is due to spiritual starvation and suppressed emotions due to trauma. Despite that, I thought that maybe getting a diagnosis would give me at least one identity I could hold on to. Maybe it would help me in some way. With Mollie’s incredible dedication to her own recovery through endless amounts of research and conversations with mental health professionals, she shared how a BPD diagnoses is like a scarlet letter in the medical field, and can actually cause you much more harm than good. Mollie protected me from doing something that would have hurt me in the long run, and I thank her from the bottom of my heart for that. She saved me from putting myself in an unsafe position, not out of any BPD destructive behavior, but just out of lack of information. Truly, she is doing God’s work. It is not easy to be this vulnerable and this transparent, which is why most don’t do it. This is also why I celebrate Mollie to the highest extent because while this podcast is helping her with her own journey to recovery, it is truly a selfless act to share it with others. If you have BPD, or experience the symptoms, you know how terrifying and detrimental any form of rejection or criticism can be. Mollie knew that sharing her story would leave her vulnerable to that, and she did it anyways. Not only for her own personal growth, but knowing that if it helped just one person, it was worth it. That is alchemy and pure love at its finest. Thank you for everything Mollie. I hope you all experience the same comfort, “aha” moments, and transformation I have from this podcast ❤️
