Rescue me? (A borderline mantra)

A borderline will only crave to be rescued until you are seen to pass the rescuing test. Once you commit yourself to engaging this aspect of borderline drama you will find that what you are met with is anger or rage at the prospect that somehow you know better than the borderline does.

via BORDERLINE PERSONALITY DISORDER – FROM THE INSIDE OUT – Articles on BPD written in 1999 by A.J. Mahari.

Sadly, this is true.

If you don’t rescue, you are “abandoning”. If you do rescue, you are “controlling”. It is truly no win.
