    Dear R-ann,

    I think everyone in the world has done some “nasty” things or some “hateful” things to one degree or another, but having an excess of empathy I don’t think goes along with NPD either. LOL So we all have to one degree or another those TRAITS though, and so I think it is the ONGOING PATTERN of our behavior as well as our insight or lack of insight and or empathy which characterises PDs

    FEAR alone I don’t think is all that makes up BPD though people with BPD do have some abandonment issues someitmes and can jump from “Zero to sixty” emotionally from I love you, you are my best friend to I hate you I want to kill you, to back to you are my best friend in the blink of an eye. But I also think that as victims we sometimes experience those mood swings as well. Humans are pretty complex creatures.

    I try to educate myself about psychology but also about myself as well…none of us fit a perfectly square hole, and I don’t think the psychopaths do either, there are a lot of over laps in just about every psych diagnosis.

    It doesn’t matter to me what the “name” is or what the criteria for a diagnosis is….the thing that I go by now is is it an honest and kind way to behave? If not…then I don’t need that person in my life. If I can’t trust someone, if I can’t count on them, if they don’t like me, don’t respect me, don’t treat me well—what do I need them for? I can’t see any benefit to a relationship with them except at a DISTANCE…I enjoy being around people who are nice to me, I don’t enjoy being around people who are not nice to me…so that right there is my key. Doesn’t matter to me if someone is an X, a Y or a Z, if they are not honest with me or kind, I just don’t need them in my life.

    It took me a long time to figure that out, but once I got there, it is pretty simple, really. I’ve given way too many people the benefit of the doubt and the second and third and 100th chance…but I’m not required to let other people abuse me in order to keep them “happy.” I’m pretty “picky” but I’ve come to see that as a good thing not a bad thing. I’m just not seeing myself as responsible for the happiness and well being of everyone else in the world any more. Gosh, what a relief. I can let God run the universe and I don’t have to any more. LOL 🙂

    I also did “what I was told”

    My husband wouldn’t let me put the baby in the car seat. He was too impatient. When I insisted he got in my face and hissed threats at me through clenched teeth with his finger poking at my nose. I didn’t put the baby in the car seat!

    Nothing happened to our baby, thank goodness. But, if something had it would have been my fault. Cause people hold mothers responsible.

    Imagine being bullied into something you know is wrong and then being held responsible.

    My daughter is now in her later twenties and this thought still haunts me.

    Jeannie,
    the implications are unbearable. He is an evil creature.
    God has your back. Of that you can be sure.
