The Struggle: Borderline Personality Disorder Pt5


Dr. Phil discusses borderline personality disorder and the impact it can have on people's lives. Labels are important for communication and understanding when it comes to therapy and treatment. Borderline personality disorder is characterized by a pervasive pattern of instability in interpersonal relationships, self-image, and emotions, as well as marked impulsivity. This isn't just someone having a bad day but a consistent pattern in their behavior.


Dr. Phil breaks down the nine characteristics of borderline personality disorder, including fear of abandonment, unstable relationships, identity disturbance, impulsivity, emotional instability, chronic feelings of emptiness, explosive anger, and dissociative symptoms. He offers insights and strategies for dealing with someone who has borderline personality disorder, emphasizing the importance of talking about what they deserve rather than what they need. He also addresses how BPD is “the most stigmatized disorder of all” and encourages people to seek help.
