Do you feel manipulated, controlled, or lied to? Are you the focus of intense, violent, and irrational rages? Do you feel as though you are constantly trying to avoid confrontation?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should remember this: It's not your fault. And you're not alone. In fact, the person you care about may have traits associated with borderline personality disorder (BPD), such as emotion dysregulation, impulsive behavior, unstable sense of self, and difficulty with interpersonal relationships. No matter how much you want to be there for your loved one, at times it can feel like you are walking on eggshells.

This compassionate guide will enable you to:

Make sense out of the chaos Stand up for yourself and assert your needs Defuse arguments and conflicts Protect yourself and others from violent behavior

Stop Walking on Eggshellshas already helped nearly half a million people with friends and family members suffering from BPD understand this destructive disorder, set boundaries, and help their loved ones stop relying on dangerous BPD behaviors.

I DO NOT recommend this book for anyone who may think they have BPD or anyone wanting to help someone with BPD. As a person with BPD, I found this book as targeting. I think this book would be extremely helpful for someone who found out that a person they are trying to distance themselves from has BPD. As it says, it should only be read if your trying to "take back YOUR life". I would only suggest "I hate you.. Dont't leave me"..Or contact me as I have written three unpublished memoirs that show inside the mind of a person with BPD.

As a novice at understanding psychology, I found this very helpful. It gave valuable information as to what Borderline Personality Disorder is and practical advice as to how to interact with people afflicted with it, especially when you must deal with them frequently. Although the advice is mainly for BPD interactions, it could serve as a basis for communication in ordinary circumstances. The resources in the Appendices were outstanding.
