Unstable sense of self: sense of self depends on the attitudes and behaviors of those they want care from. Borderlines have values and opinions, but the need to be approved of can easily override them, and often does.
Dissociative moments- difficulty recalling what they said or did in a specific moment.
All of these uncontrollable factors foster a persistent and deeply rooted sense of insecurity with themselves and in what goes on around them. This insecurity stems from lack of control over their behaviors and emotions or their environment.
Idealize Caregivers: believe that the people they are close to are perfect, doing all that they can to ensure they’re caregiver’s well being and thinking that they will make the person feel loved, safe, and alive at all times.
Devaluate Caregivers: once the significant other can’t live up to idealized expectations, borderlines perceive that the person is completely unsupportive, selfish, and uncaring.
Fear of Abandonment: extreme dependence on support and presence of other people
Fear of Closeness: driven by fear of being hurt, fear of loosing fragile independence and sense of self, or a desire to escape the problems of their current relationships
Borderlines fluctuate between these unrealistic perceptions and extremes.
