“The theologian Paul Tillich wrote that "loneliness can be conquered only by those who can bear solitude." Because the borderline finds solitude so difficult to tolerate, she is trapped in a relentless metaphysical loneliness from which the the only relief comes from of the physical presence of others. So she will often rush to singles bars or with crowded haunts, often with disappointing--or even violent--results.”
Jerold J. Kreisman, I Hate You, Don't Leave Me: Understanding the Borderline Personality

“A borderline suffers a kind of emotional hemophilia; [s]he lacks the clotting mechanism needed to moderate [his or her] spurts of feeling. Stimulate a passion, and the borderline emotionally bleeds to death.”
Jerold Kreisman, Hal Straus, I Hate You, Don't Leave Me: Understanding the Borderline Personality

“When the borderline is alone, continuity and connectedness cease. Like sand falling through her fingers, her confidence - even her sense of reality - slip away.”
Jerold J. Kreisman, Sometimes I Act Crazy: Living with Borderline Personality Disorder
