If your world is feeling topsy-turvy, there's good reason for it.
I've said it dozens of times. 80% of the world's population has BPD traits. Our government is a cross section of society where there's a higher incidence of personality disordered people.
The same is true for the medical profession~ but WHY, you might ask, is this true? It all boils down to a heightened degree of Narcissism within individuals who inhabit positions that grant them significant latitude when it comes to control and power.
The term, "Malignant Narcissism" represents the extreme end of the NPD spectrum scale. It manifests as psychotic traits such as pathological lying, gaslighting, acute manipulation, and even physical abuse and murder.
While ALL Borderlines are narcissistic, extreme cases of BPD are viewed as toxically or malignantly narcissistic. BPD is potentially a far more dangerous personality disorder than NPD, due to the psychotic traits that attend it.
Both PD's deserve our compassion~ but you never want to consider engaging in a romantic or sexual involvement with either. There are no positive outcomes possible, with someone who has no sense of boundaries, impulse control or empathy.
