Invalidating environment borderline personality disorder
I didn’t have the proper insurance to cover any kind of one-on-one therapy.When I said I couldn’t, he signed my papers and said I should go see a social worker at the clinic closest to me, who would then refer me to other options better for my financial situation. I did everything possible since then to help with my diagnosis, but I wish things had been different.In addition, this deficiency may have several different origins.They include a biological predisposition, an environmental context of avoidance, and the interaction of the two.One factor that gives people with (and without) BPD trouble regulating emotions is the family context they grew up in.Normally, therapy reveals that families have not validated the emotional needs of their children.
The critical environment leads to frustration, anger, sadness and fear becoming part of the child’s personality.
For example, if the child cries, instead of attending to them or trying to find out what is wrong, the parents tell him he’s a “crybaby”.
So he learns that it’s bad to show his emotions and that he will be reprimanded when he does.
The child learns to express his emotions in an extreme way, or completely inhibits or disinhibits them, as this dysfunctional expression grows.
People with borderline personality disorder are very sensitive to external experiences because they are afraid of abandonment.
