Repost @lifeordeathbasically Since our audience and this…
Since our audience and this account has grown a lot since two years ago (👏🙌) when we were educating and sharing facts about borderline personality disorder every few days, we thought we’d get back to that a bit!
BPD FACT #2: a common behavior among people with bpd is frantic efforts to avoid real or perceived abandonment. many people with borderline struggle with insecure attachment, meaning that they are extremely sensitive to changes in other people’s behavior and are more likely to form dependent relationships. when there is a perceived change in behavior or slight in one of those relationships (even something as small as rescheduled plans or an unanswered text), they may find it difficult to regulate their emotional reaction to the situation, jumping instantly to a high stress or panic response. this can cause behavior such as frantic texting or calling, threats of suicide, or acts of self-destruction or self-harm.
this characteristic of bpd is why many people believe that everyone with borderline personality disorder is a master at manipulation and lying for attention. however, these behaviors and efforts to avoid abandonment are very rarely a conscious or premeditated response, but rather a reaction to the overwhelm of feeling that can come from being triggered by one of these situations. the acting out or begging for forgiveness is not a tactic of cold emotional manipulation, but something that feels like a vital and immediate way to get relief from those feelings of panic and unworthiness.
