Short Description:Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is now "one of the most controversial
diagnoses in psychology today" (Wikipedia). It is most often applied to
those individuals who are severely under-functioning in both family and society.
Is BPD really a disorder or just plain old bad karma? Only you can decide
after looking through the criteria for determining who has Borderline
Personality Disorder and what really underlies its constellation of symptoms.
Those who have Borderline Personality Disorder suffer from:
* Deeply painful relationships where the sufferer always ends up getting
hurt (by attracting negative partners).
* Repetitive, self destructive behaviors designed to attract positive
attention (help, sympathy, or support) from others.
* Chronic fears of abandonment resulting in panic/anxiety when forced to
be alone (especially if they must live alone).
* Distorted thoughts (inaccurate, negative perceptions of people, events,
and situations) causing poor decisions and actions.
* Unusual sensitivity to non-verbal signals from others (facial expressions,
body language, gestures, tone of voice, etc).
* Impulsive behavior driven by intense negative emotions which later
embarrass the sufferer and jeopardize their significant relationships.
* Poor socialization causing the sufferer to act inappropriately in public
(at school, on the job, in social settings, etc).
* Constant cycling through negative emotional states (depression, anxiety,
anger, hopelessness, and so on).
Alternative explanations for Borderline Personality Disorder are:
* "Deeply painful relationships where the sufferer always ends up
getting hurt" are the balancing of past life karma where the present
sufferer caused pain to those same partners in past lives. In this life,
they are on the receiving end of the treatment they gave to their karmic
relationship partners in past lives.
* "Repetitive, self destructive behaviors" which do not make sense
now did make sense in past lives. For example, those who are compulsive
hoarders now suffered/died from wasting scarce resources in past lives
while today they may be drowning in and dying from their own garbage because
they cannot let anything go.
* "Chronic fears of abandonment resulting in panic/anxiety" experienced
now are the cellular memory from past lives when being alone resulted in
serious injury, illness, pain and even death. For example, those who
contracted the plague or other infectious diseases died when loved ones
abandoned them in order to avoid becoming infected themselves. The deep
and fearful trauma of their dying days in past lives makes them unusually
clingy and need in their present one.
* "Distorted thoughts" are outdated defenses that kept the person
alive in the past but are hurting them now. For example, those who are
constantly mistrustful push away all those who try to become close to
them. While that might have saved one from harm in the past, it keeps
the individual isolated now from helpful people.
* "Unusual sensitivity to non-verbal signals" is a carryover from
past lives before the invention of language. For example, those who become
unduly fearful when others look and sound angry are over-reacting to these
non-verbal signals because this was a resourceful behavior when language
could not clarify them.
* "Impulsive behaviors, poor socialization, negative emotions" are
most often past lives that are crying out for healing. Impulsive,
split-second decisions were often the difference between life and death
in past lives. Poor socialization was a good idea when strangers
were not friends but most often enemies who had not yet revealed themselves.
Negative emotions and the mindset of "whatever can go wrong, will
go wrong" often was a healthy skepticism that kept the individual in the
past safe from hurt and protected from others who meant them harm.
