Our personalities determine how we process and understand our thoughts and feelings, allowing us to adjust accordingly when faced with the stresses we encounter every day. For people with healthy personalities, reacting to situations appropriately comes easy, and building relationships with family, friends and co-workers a walk in the park. Unfortunately, not everybody is able to do so, and for those who suffer from personality disorders, dealing with the natural stresses of life and interacting with people aren’t as easy as they seem.
Mental health experts have identified a number of these disorder types, each with its own characteristic symptoms that, when deeply ingrained, can cause distress or impaired functioning in a person suffering from it. One of the types identified is Borderline personality disorder.
