    Notice how abrasive this therapist seems when compared against the females.

    Sometimes I worry that I'll develop some syndrome after watching these types of things.

    Like someone going on WebMD and deciding they're for sure dying of some exotic disease...

    If it does, don't worry it will wear off soon enough. It only took me a few hours.

    That's why I don't go near WebMD. That is a godawful info site.

    Contradictions in thinking are a critical aspect of therapy ... personally, I'm partial to validation because as I've pointed out many times here, I'm never wrong. It is just a matter of getting others to agree with me. One thing I've learned, I'm attracted to the superficial characteristics of the personality disordered. I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

    There's so much I could say about this as unfortunately I have the experience and the scars on my soul to prove it. It takes a long, long time to recover from such an experience with someone who has BPD. It's such a devastating condition, basically people with BPD are radioactive. If you get too close, your soul will get radiation sickness and maybe you won't die, but perhaps the outcome will be even worse. On the outside such people can be so sweet and caring, intelligent, funny... But intimate relationships triggers their condition. The partner, friend, children become the outlet for their emotional problems and boy do they have those.

    The external object meaning the family member is "expected" to regulate their emotions, which of course is impossible and once they're no longer idealized they can become the devil due to splitting. Also people with BPD are not truly capable of loving anyone, nor trusting or respecting because they don't have a sense of self until they've found it again through therapy and chances are very low that people with BPD ever get into therapy. Also they do see other people as objects which honestly is quite frightening, it has something to do with lowered empathy. They do have empathy, but they are not really able to put themselves into the other person's shoes. Their own needs and emotions override everything, they have endless needs and they're never met. There is no compassion to be found in them.

    Unless they've been in therapy long enough and even then BPD is not exactly cured because it's who they are, they just can get more self-aware and won't be so impulsive and destructive. As it is Cluster B personality disorder it's not too far away from narcissistic personality disorder. Both conditions are extremely devastating, but narcs are just literally demons from hell. There's no hope for them. Although with borderlines I could say that their soul origin is not human either to put it mildly, I've seen that there are forces taking control over the person with no self, and those forces are not good. I've seen it in the eyes, the blackness and it is one of the most terrifying things I've ever seen. Narcissistic/borderline rage is horrifying, it makes you even fear for your life.

    This is true. And they have no qualm resorting to lies and emotional manipulation in order to get their needs met.

    This is not true. I've got someone with BPD in my life for about 19 years now, of which we were very close friends for about 10 years, and we're still friends today, albeit not closely anymore. They most certainly do feel compassion and they certainly can feel remorse, but compared to other people, it does take much more to trigger those responses within them, such as being brutally confronted with the consequences of their actions.
