Tough love isn't and does not have to be what many first think or perceive it to be and/or mean. A.J. sheds light on that in her focus on a middle-ground type of tough love that can benefit both the person with BPD and the person who loves or cares him or her.
 

 
 
It is also important to note that incorporating tough love into an eclectic approach that comes from a balanced well-thought out middle-ground can be very helpful to loved ones of those with BPD, whether or not the person with BPD in your life is in therapy, wants help, or not.
