LIFT Your Story with Gypsy Wonder Motivational Speaker on Overcoming Challenges including BPD

An energetic young lady, Gypsy shares with us about her challenges, which include type one diabetes, being in a car accident at which time she ended up in a wheelchair, and consequently a lifetime leg injury, her struggles with alcoholism and drug use, suicidal ideation, and finally Borderline Personality Disorder.

Gypsy explains the ups and downs of BPD, the tendencies toward addiction, be it alcohol, drugs, or even relationships.  She attributes her progress to DBT – Dialectical Beharioral Therapy.  She says it is amazing and teaches life skills, emotional management and checking facts, something that should be taught in school.

She confesses her BPD was difficult on her family and friends.  She hurt people who were trying to support her.  

Gypsy explains that you have to wake up every morning to make the choice, push through it, and realize you deserve better.  It is important to make amends with the past, and to leave shame and guilt behind in order to assist in the recovery.

Recovering from alcoholism began with a promise to her estranged boyfriend in order to try to get him back after her infidelity.  She equated this to transference from alcohol to relationship as being from one addiction to another.  The positive side to this was that the relationship did not move forward, however Gypsy realized it was important to HER to continue being sober.

Gypsy encompassed enthusiasm, humour and energy in her story and aspires to share her story as a Motivational Speaker and Influencer in hopes to reach others who have experienced the same struggles, and to inspire them in knowing that there is a solution.

“Be nice,” is her simple motto.
