How To Stop Having A Favorite Person With Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)
In this article, I will share with you a few tips that may help you to stop having a favorite person with BPD. And as always, I am not a doctor or mental health professional so please consult your doctor if you have any concerns.
1. Learn to be more self-sufficient and less needy.
Learn to take care of yourself better and be more independent by learning how to ask for help when needed and learn how to say no when necessary. This is a hard thing to do but when it comes down to it, asking for help only means that you are being honest about your feelings and how much you need someone at that moment in time. It is not being weak or selfish at all! Saying no is another matter altogether but it’s always good to have the option of saying no especially when things get out of control. Do what feels right for you and remember, there are other people who can help in your life too so don’t feel like you are alone in this journey!
2. Learn that others can be as emotionally unstable as you can be (while still being themselves).
You’re not crazy. You’re just emotionally unstable. It is a fact that we are all emotionally unstable but that doesn’t make you crazy. You’re not the only one who feels this way, if anything, it makes sense that we all feel this way!
You also need to remember that everyone around you is human too and they may have their own personal issues or problems too. Don’t be so quick to judge and be quick to judge others for their actions or their words.
3. Learn how to take care of yourself better by taking care of your emotions first and then your physical symptoms.
This is an important step in learning how to stop having a favorite person with BPD because when you take care of yourself well, you are able to manage your emotions better and as a result, you are more stable in life as well as in your relationships with others. If you don’t learn how to manage your emotions well, then it will be very easy for you to get into a situation where someone else will take care of the problem for you by making things worse for you instead of helping you out! I know this can be a hard thing to do but it’s important for you to remember that you can’t control another person and at the same time, you need to learn how to take care of yourself better.
4. Learn how to take care of yourself better by taking care of your physical symptoms first and then your emotional symptoms.
You can’t manage your emotions well if you don’t know what is happening with your physical body as well! This is an important step in learning how to stop having a favorite person with BPD because when you take care of yourself well, then you will be able to feel better physically that way, it will be easier for you not only emotionally but physically as well. If you don’t learn how to manage your emotions well, then it will be very easy for another person or people in your life (people who have BPD) will make things worse for you instead of helping you out! This is why it’s so important that when learning how to stop having a favorite person with BPD, this step is taken first!
5. Learn not only how other people see the world but also how you can see things differently.
This is an important step in learning how to stop having a favorite person with BPD because it will help you to be able to see things from the perspective of how other people are seeing the world. It will be easier for you to not only understand what is going on but also how you can help them understand what is going on as well. If you don’t learn how to manage your emotions well, then it will be very easy for another person or people in your life (people who have BPD) will make things worse for you instead of helping you out! This is why it’s so important that when learning how to stop having a favorite person with BPD, this step is taken first!
What Is Borderline Personality Disorder?

Tips For Maintaining An Equal Relationship With All Your Loved Ones With BPD
- Don’t get stuck in the role of being a parent, spouse, or sibling to one person. Remember that you are a member of a group that includes all your loved ones with BPD.
- Remember that everyone has different needs and wants. Don’t assume that your needs and wants are more important than theirs.
- Recognize that everyone has strengths and weaknesses, and they may be experiencing different problems at different times.
- Try to be understanding when you feel neglected by others because it is hard to see yourself as being neglected when you have been so focused on the other person’s needs for so long.
- Think about ways you can help each individual with their problems instead of focusing on your own issues or feelings about them not helping you in some way (such as not listening well).
- Be careful to avoid being critical of the others. Try to focus on the positive qualities each person has and how you can support them and help them be better.
- Remember that everyone’s problems are unique, so try not to compare yourself to other people with BPD or other family members with BPD who have different problems or challenges.
- Try not to be jealous of or resentful towards others because you want what they have (such as more attention from them, etc.).
- Try not to use your experiences with one person as an excuse for your own behavior around another person who is experiencing difficulties.
- Don’t get stuck in a role where you feel that you are supposed to be doing something for one of your loved ones with BPD even though they may be doing it for themselves, such as making their own decisions about their lives, making their own choices about their relationships, etc.
