There’s been a lot of “borders” drawn around the personality disorder and whether it is as a personality disorder. Many would suggest that the traits that are associated with the disorder are instilled by external influences and therefore it is a personality disorder.
What does it mean by “Borderline?”
Borderline refers to the situation of not being here or there (personally) in any particular subject or item. The person will place the burden of responsibility on those they are a part of instead. These individuals are not self-confident and, therefore, are seeking to attain it through other people.
Another reason could be that it is associated with someone who has borderline personality disorder (BPD) is also likely to be a bit sloppy in regards to violence too. That means that someone suffering from BPD is likely to turn to violence when other people take part in it or exhibit signs that they can gain the approval of others in some manner. But they are not likely to be violent or an aggressive individual. That is exactly what “Borderline signifies and is a reference to.
Internal Parts Borderline Personality Disorder
Anyone suffering from BPD or an emotionally unstable personality disorder completely dependent on influence from peers. In addition individuals with this disorder are more vulnerable to peer pressure, and more easily manipulated by peer pressure.
I’m able provide numerous reasons how I think it is motivated by a person’s desire to gain acceptance. In fact, everything they do is dependent on this fact. That’s why their behavior tends to look like Sociopathy, Psychopathy, Antisocial Personality Disorder, and Manic Depression. They quickly change to whatever is believed as the “acceptable standard.”
They will stand by their convictions even if these activities are in direct violation of their personal convictions, moral codes and even the law. In simple terms it is that they would engage in any action, absorb any thought or feel emotionally connected to the current trends in the present. For example If they spot something on television or in a film which they think is something that could be popular, they’ll take it up (even even if it is dangerous for them or anyone else). External influences can come through any kind of source (people or movies, TV videos, shows etc.). The sole accountability and blame lies with the person who is responsible rather than an external source (as some might like to say) Eugene Stokes.
Personally, I believe that we naturally seek the other side of ourselves. However, those with BPD has a stronger desire to connect with others and turns it into an impulse-driven need. So, they justify it (subconsciously) the fact that their entire livelihood depends on it. In essence, someone suffering from BPD can be described as an uninverted Narcissist.
Instead of everything transforming around them, the person suffering from BPD is a person who focuses on their self-worth in the people they are associated with. This is a way of removing the energy generated by these relationships. This is the concept I was referring to when discussing “Borrowed Strength” in previous posts. The mindset and the willingness to accept any situation to fit into what they perceive as the majority or more powerful. Even when they are aware that it is irrational, harmful or even dangerous.
The signs of Borderline Psychological Disorder
The) Pertinent presence of an “Void“–The base reason for people with BPD’s desire to be accepted is the huge void they’re trying to fill in themselves. Since they are dependent on and feed that void, it constantly consumes their emotional and mental energy. There is little left for themselves. That’s the reason why people resort to filing the matter with the acceptance, approval and a connection with other people. It is often described as a feeling or feeling of “Emptiness.” Keep in mind that this is the basis for the other signs that follow.
- B) Extremely Fluctuating relationships–As mentioned before the majority of them will take on any kind of ideology, strategy, and sway over others.Whatever the absurd, bizarre or bizarre they may appear in their nature.This is the reason you might observe someone suffering from BPD shifting from one type of group, person or concept to another. This is even if there is an entire contrast or a dramatic distinction.
- C) The Impulsive–As clearly stated This type of person will take advantage of any opportunity to fill that void with the methods that are prescribed.This can manifest in every aspect of their lives.Some are innocent or are more of an irritation more than any other thing. But, they can also have some risky impulses. This includes spending money and sexually reckless encounters large amounts of consumption and consumption of drugs and foods as well as walking and driving.
- D) The loss of sense of Self–Because they easily and unconsciously convert themselves to the ideas of others, their own ideas, and states of mind, they gradually lose their sense of who they are.This leads to a loss of identity.The feeling they experience in the amount it is like having the knowledge that you’ll pass away and are uncertain of what will happen in the aftermath. The terror they experience is the way they feel about the outcome of their own actions. But they are powerless and don’t know what to do about it.
- A) emotional instability–Since they’ve been letting people dictate how to be thinking, feeling and acting they are unable to feel any emotion generated by themselves.It becomes scary.Like how some people get scared when they are in silence , with only their thoughts to entertain themselves.
When one is feeling that way, they respond in a variety of ways. Many of them are similar to what one would expect from someone who is anxious, scared or angry. They could become incredibly unstable, sporadic, feel uneasy, suffer anxiety-related increases, and even exhibit aggressive behavior. The duration of these episodes may vary from minutes in time, minutes, or hours, to the more rare days (which is the reason they are often confused with Manic Depression or Post-traumatic Stress Disorder).
- F) Intense Anger–Usually when we are emotional confused, we tend to react by launching a volley of anger.But for those with BPD, the intensity of anger is increased in a variety of ways.) It is either justified, and they do not have the desire to control it, or 2) they might be confused as they are required to express feelings and concepts specific to them which is why they respond to anger in a way that is inappropriate or) they might struggle to control the anger. It is usually expressed in repeated or frequent display, which makes it appear as if they are angered on a regular basis or in a fight often.
- G) Paranoia–The fear experienced by people suffering from BPD is based on the fact that they are accepted by other people.Their primary concern is being rejected from the world, being rejected and lonely (or being a victim of such).The paranoia is caused by the self-generated fear that is lurking around every turn. Therefore, they always worry about what others think about their image. The continual stress of their life can be quite tiresome and exhausting. That’s why people are compelled to rely on the strengths of other people (so they are able to’survive’).
- H) Problems with Abandonment–Individuals who suffer from BPD typically make great efforts in order to not feel abandoned.Sometimes this feeling of abandonment is genuine, but sometimes it is fabricated, and occasionally self-described.(Considering that their existence depends on being accepted.) Imagine what they’d be feeling if they were to be abandoned or believe that they were. They are among those people who are stuck in abusive relationships or in a toxic relationship. Even though they may have healthier relationships, they might be loyal (to an extent) to the unhealthy one.
- I) SuicidalThe majority of sufferers with BPD who feel abandoned or that they are abandoned may resort to suicide in order to control.This usually is a false threat or deliberate failure–a desperate attempt to end their lives.This is used to induce the people who left them to re-connect and sooth their desires. Sometimes, this takes as self-mutilation or self-torture. However, there are also those who are so engulfed in their own empty space that they believe the only option other than death.
The intention behind these pieces is to help you to recognize the patterns that occurs in borderline personality Disorder (and every other disorder disorder for the matter). The entire process is dependent on the need to fill their need for acceptance. That’s why their peers are impulsively influencing them. Influence can be from any source and in any way. It’s not a matter of concern, because the long as it is providing them with the energy they require to flourish, they are not concerned.
