Publisher's Summary

Would you like to know what BPD is? Then keep reading...

BPD is also referred to as biosocial disorder among experts. This means that this disorder often starts with an inclination towards biological factors but is then intensified by the social environment of an individual.

By temperament, the people with BPD often are intensely emotionally sensitive and very reactive. This is because they tend to feel things immediately and intensely as opposed to other people. Once their powerful and intense emotions have been triggered, it takes them a very long duration to get back to the emotional baseline.

It is important to note that when these emotionally vulnerable people are confronted by their surroundings because they cannot validate their feelings, they develop BPD. In other words, they feel as though the people around them do not fully understand and acknowledge them as they are enough to help them handle their condition. In most cases, children who develop BPD have been shown to suffer abuse and neglect. Additionally, BPD also arises in children whose parents or guardians - well-meaning and loving - reduce their emotional feelings too much because they think that they are inappropriate or exaggerated. 

What you will note about people with BPD is that they are often overwhelmed by feelings of intense anger, emptiness, self-loathing, shame, and abandonment among others. It is these kinds of feelings that causes their relationships to be quite unstable - hence causing them to be prone to interpreting things negatively.

Fabulous book!!

As someone suffering from BPD made me warm and fuzzy inside, it explains it simply and well, ofc BPD is much more complicated than this and there are many things go into it, but as a simple way to explain it this was wonderful.
