When you hear the words “personality disorder,” some of you might make frightening associations. However, individuals who have personality disorders are all around us. Almost 8% of the world’s population is estimated to have a personality disorder, making personality disorders a well-recognized priority amongst mental health communities.
What’s a personality disorder?
Generally, individuals with personality disorders exhibit behaviors, action patterns, and emotional experiences that differ so much from the norm that they negatively affect daily functioning.
There are a number of different types which we’ll briefly explain below.
Borderline personality disorder.
Also known as “emotionally unstable personality disorder,” individuals with borderline personality disorder have an extremely difficult time regulating their emotions. As a result, they experience emotion to the extreme, often resulting in self-destructive behaviors, impulsivity, and a lack of trust.
Narcissistic personality disorder.
If you know the word “narcissist”, this disorder is self-explanatory. These people will live their lives to an extreme to make everything about themselves, and they may lack feeling or empathy for others.
This disorder is often related to risky or dangerous activities that could put the person with antisocial personality disorder in danger while also endangering the people around them. Impulse, aggression, and lack of empathy are common.
Histrionic personality disorder.
These people base their self-worth on the approval of others, meaning they may struggle if they are not constantly the center of attention.
Avoidant personality disorder.
Some people experience such great anxiety about particular people or situations that they avoid them entirely, even when it causes them harm or decreases their daily functioning. This is an avoidant personality.
Schizoid personality disorder.
These individuals have different experiences than those who are diagnosed with “schizophrenia,” even though the words sound similar. Those with a schizoid personality disorder often prefer to spend time alone or have difficulty relating to other people. This can make them seem cold or distant.
Dependent personality disorder.
Those who find themselves dependent have trouble identifying their own self-worth and are often unable to function without the presence of others (or one specific person).
Conquering the struggle.
If you have been diagnosed with a personality disorder or think that you might be struggling with one, you are not alone. Sure, it might seem difficult to seek help or discuss your situation, but speaking with a professional mental health Expert via online counseling is the best way to tackle life with a personality disorder.
