So many books, articles and blogs are very damaging to Borderlines.  They have tips on things like how to “train your Borderline.”  I’m not kidding!  Here is a passage from one such book:

One analogy I have used around this issue is:  “My H is really a good, law-abiding person.  It’s just that every once in a while he robs a bank.  But really, deep down inside, he is a good, law-abiding person.”
