Instability in Relationships

Individuals with BPD often exhibit patterns of instability in their relationships.1‘Borderline Personality Disorder.’ Mayo Clinic, 17 July 2019, mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/borderline-personality-disorder/symptoms-causes/syc-20370237 This may include friendships, romantic relationships and professional or familial connections.

This instability is generally marked by periods of idealization and extreme closeness, followed by cruel behavior. This disorder may also cause a person with BPD to accuse the other party of not caring enough or not acting in a way that is considered acceptable to continue the relationship.1‘Borderline Personality Disorder.’ Mayo Clinic, 17 July 2019, mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/borderline-personality-disorder/symptoms-causes/syc-20370237
