It’s why BPD relationships tend to have a Honeymoon Period. Unfortunately, this good-natured character can cause you to develop this White Knight belief system. But, what you have done is fallen in love with their potential. But, falling in love with someone’s potential is a common mistake I see in BPD relationships. You’re lost in the future instead of accepting your partner as is in the present.
You can’t be a hero in the present, and this frustrates you. You’re seeking an end-result that exists in your imaginary future.
It’s impossible to be strong and centered when your mind isn’t focused on the present.
This makes dating someone with BPD an impossible task.
Hiding your bipolar disorder from you partner will only mean a longer, more anxiety ridden explanation later on.
Simply explaining things like the paranoia and occasional psychosis that goes along with bipolar disorder, as well as what to expect during a manic episode can help prevent more serious problems from developing in the relationship later on.
You lose focus of the present moment with your partner. So, let’s jump to the 5 signs that I deem most noteworthy. We’re drawn to people with similar beliefs, values, upbringing and so on. These bad mindsets are what cause your BPD partner to push you away, give you the cold shoulder, and seek out other partners behind your back. Too many people make the same, common mistakes in BPD relationships. You want the best for you, your partner and the relationship.
Quite often dating someone with bipolar disorder is much easier if the person they are dating is aware of the condition and knows what to expect.
However, better mindsets lead you to better relationships. Am I saying that your BPD relationship will pull a 180 and be healthy forever? You’ll develop a better sense of power and direction. And, if you happen to have BPD yourself, you can make great strides in your own life by following my advice. The world today is much different than it was 10 years ago or so.
If you attained all these things, do you think your relationships would improve? Your environment and life experiences determine your mental and emotional state.
1) A change of mindsets is absolutely required when you’re dating someone with BPD or Bipolar.
2) Society has rapidly changed in the past 5 years.
