During a discussion, it occurred to me that three of the Cluster B “disorders” provide a firewall to protect us from emotional pain. For Psychopaths, it’s detachment. For Narcissists, it’s the “false self.” For Histrionics, it’s the shallowness of emotions. They are easily wounded but heal quickly. The only one that doesn’t seem to have a firewall is Borderline. Borderlines can be consumed by their emotions.
Do you Borderlines out there agree or do I have that wrong?
