Dating someone with bpd borderline personality disorder

07 Jan

Even if you hear it a lot, all threats of suicide need to be taken seriously.

Also, don't take their outrageous behaviors personally. One of the ways you can maintain a relationship with your loved one is to educate yourself about the disorder so you can understand your loved one's behaviors.

It would be like faulting a person for getting cancer.

However, this is not a reason to allow the person you love with BPD to manipulate or abuse you.

Creating a plan on how to deal with the behaviors ensures that you are not feeding the symptoms of the disorder by ensuring you stay calm in the midst of an issue.

You will also be able to reinforce better, productive behaviors. They yell, threaten suicide (and are sometimes serious), accuse, blame, and are highly defensive.
