why was the relationship with bpd episode deleted? I wanted to go back and listen to it. Also, I too have had a long term intimate relationship with a person diagnosed with bpd. I too was accused of lacking compassion when I began to speak up about what happened to me. Not all people with BPD are abusive but many are and my ex was. The nature of his abuse was psychological however and so it was harder to recognize what I was experiencing as intimate partner violence. my ex was "in therapy." he did dbt. he did EMDR. he did cbt. he used all therapies as masks to cover up his cruelty. he too was very self aware and seemed super cool like the guy you interviewed here. I'm not saying this guy is abusive. I wouldn't know. I'm saying , in my experience, a person with borderline who seems self aware isn't necessarily recovering. or someone you'd want to befriend.

I think this is the worst podcast in the history of the universe, including all civilizations that may exist in the future. What a bunch of pathetic self-aggrendizing narcissistic synchophants, the mole conversation like you even know what suffering is - the self adoration, the unnecessary over the top relating with one another, the fake fake fakeness of "oooh's" and "what's!" and "yaaaaah's" - the chicky fake bonding, the vapidness, the empty hot air garbled gibberish, the "my grandad was surgeon to some king yaaah, ya know" - whole fucking story was so you can say that. fucked in the head every one of you. And the delusion. My god the delusion. 6's talking about themselves like they're 10's.

Feng Shui is crazy! After listening to that ep, I put a decorative light in my "helpful people" section and 20 minutes later, a guy offered me a job. It's because he thought I was homeless, but he thought he was being helpful. 🤣🤣🤣
