“Clingy. Attached. Easily hurt. Fragile. Weak. Stormy.” These are some of the words I have heard and read, describing people in relationships who live with borderline personality disorder (BPD).
By “relationships” I am referring to a variety of relationships with others which includes: friendships, romantic, work/coworker relationships, therapeutic, and even religious such as how we may experience a relationship with God or a higher power in different spiritual paths or traditions.
