    Like prejudice, it can be revoltingly silent; dare I say passively aggressive. Whether overt or concealed I imagine the feeling just as intense and damaging on the recipient. Or so this has me thinking. And if you can make anyone think, then you have done good work here with this.

    Ugh, my first husband did all of those things regularly. For the 10 years we were married, I probably experienced all of those pretty much every week. It’s weird to look at that list now. Thank heavens I left!

      What I meant by it is that most people with BPD grow up in this type of environment where other people act that way towards them. I try not to stereotype people bit I know what you mean I’m the people pleaser type also.
