Borderline personality disorder is a serious mental health condition characterized by behaviors and emotions best described as impulsive and unstable. Those with BPD may have strong fears of abandonment and have difficulty controlling their anger. This leads to rocky relationships with others. Inner insecurities may cause them to take impulsive actions or do what is known as splitting – view someone as either all good or all bad. It’s not uncommon for those with BPD to also resort to self-mutilation or become suicidal.
