Family, Part 2

PART ONE | PART TWO | PART THREE

***

Individuals with BPD often struggle to maintain healthy relationships. The reasons are manifold: a deep fear of abandonment, the tendency to split between idolization and devaluation of a person, unexpected bursts of emotion, usually anger. This has impacted some of Ruby’s most important relationships - with best friends, romantic partners, and family.

In Part 2 of Ruby’s diary, we go a bit deeper into Ruby’s childhood and her relationship with her dad. We get a better sense of the way in which her BPD both feeds, and is fed by, the pain that exists within her family.
