Talkspace on Borderline Personality Disorder


One personality disorder that can cause a lot of pain in relationships is borderline personality disorder. This can be a very tricky thing to deal with. For one thing, people with Borderline Personality Disorder tend to push others away out of suspicion that they do not genuinely care about them. Fortunately, Talkspace has a lot of advice and experiences from people that deal with a relationship with someone who has borderline personality disorder. For one thing, it talks about the symptoms of the personality disorder so that people can know whether or not they have it or that the person that they know is suffering from it.

One issue that BPS deals with is the issue with boundaries. Often times, people who are borderline test boundaries. They would do things like take money or other belongings without permission. This often gets the borderline person in trouble. Often times, they do not have an understanding about social boundaries. Another issue that comes with BPD is the desire for codependency. One of the issues with BPD is that the person who is suffering from it needs others to constantly reaffirm the worth of the BPD sufferer. They often have issues with abandonment.

Another issue that Talkspace addresses in the BPD issue is what is known as splitting. People with BPD are often thinking in black and white. They either see people as completely evil or completely good. There is no in between. Many people see others as different shades of grey. They take note of all of the complexities which can deal with the circumstances which can drive a person to different types of actions that they would not have considered in different circumstances. Fortunately, Talkspace is there for people who are suffering from this type of personality disorder. They can learn new ways of coping which can help them avoid damaging the relationship any further.
