Recovery from Borderline Personality Disorder has two main ingredients, gaining more insight about choices made and learning to make new choices, as well as learning how to take personal responsibility. For those with BPD, taking personal responsibility means facing their abandoned pain understanding that continuing to try to avoid that pain will only keep them stuck. This journey from one's abandoned pain and a victim mentality that doesn't "emotionally" understand choices made and new choices that need to be made, is the journey From False Self to Authentic Self.   

In an excerpt from a talk that she gave to an audience of loved ones of those with Borderline Personality Disorder, author, speaker, life coach and strategist, A.J. Mahari, within the framework of tough love discusses how choice and learning to take personal responsibility are the necessary cornerstones for recovery from BPD. If a loved one enables a borderline, a borderline will not be able to learn to become more aware about his or her choices or be able to learn how to take personal responsibility.
