    They both loved each other deeply, passionately. He keeps pushing her away, fearful of being abandoned, so he abandons her first. She keeps coming back, forgiving him, cannot sleep without him, but knows she is fighting a losing battle, lying to herself that she can tempt him back one last time. She cannot sleep without him. But he has a pervasive overwhelming fear of being hurt, a perceived fear that she has other plans. He feels empty, numb. No matter how much she really loves him, he would never believe her. He has just enough awareness to realise what he is doing, and what he has become, but cannot face his fear and make himself vulnerable to love.

    "The worst part of BPD is the insecure relationships… when we are attached to someone, they are our whole world and it is crippling. We care so deeply about how long they take to reply to a text, their tone of voice, or facial expressions, because we are so afraid of losing them.”

    “The more love, kindness and patience you have for us, the more we test you, push you away and actually go out of our way to find fault with you, so that we can prove to ourselves that we were right about you all along.

    We lash out at you, sometimes in the most hurtful way possible.

    If we love you, we love you deeply. We hand you all the power to destroy us. This leads to TERRIFYING fear that you will abandon us.

    The more you mean to us the worse we treat you. We don’t believe that YOU can possibly love us because we don’t love OURSELVES and don’t feel WORTHY of YOUR love.

    We put you on such a high pedestal that it would be impossible for you NOT to disappoint us."
