In case you weren’t familiar, borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a mental health problem.
These individuals are unable to tolerate being alone due to their abandonment anxiety.
They fear being abandoned and often threaten to kill themselves.
Another typical behavior is self-harm, cutting or burning themselves.
They fall head over heels in love with people they don’t know the first thing about and then become disillusioned and deeply resentful when the other person fails to match their fantasies.
They are emotionally unstable and vulnerable and they feel very hurt and betrayed when people, as they see it, let them down.
Irritability and inappropriate anger with temper tantrums may occur. While love addiction is not medically diagnosable, addictive behavior is difficult to live with. They are unable to see the faults of their partner, and cannot tolerate changes in intimacy.
Because their partner will eventually disappoint them, the person with BPD must reconcile their black and white conceptualization.
It’s the familiar antisocial person ranging from the neighbourhood thug who gets into fights when he is drunk, to the full-fledged psychopath that entirely lacks empathy and uses other people for money, sex or other benefits. People with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) are a completely different breed.
Their core features are their desperate need for love and lack of interpersonal skills.
Borderlines can often come across as poor and misunderstood – perhaps because they genuinely feel that way – and being vulnerable they hardly evoke any fear in others.
Their melodramatic gestures are sometimes pathetic or tragic, but again, nothing that will scare anyone. Emo Despite of the soap opera-type behavior found in psychiatric literature, between 25-50 percent of people with borderline are boys and men, and males who are angry, jealous and hateful tend to be dangerous.
