A personality disorder refers to a mental health condition represented by unhealthy patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that are expressed through emotional instability, mood swings, feelings of worthlessness, insecurity, and impulsivity, as well as an inability to maintain responsibilities to work, to school, or to social relationships.
Borderline personality disorder is a mental health disorder that is characterized by unfitting or extreme emotional reactions, highly impulsive behaviors, and intense mood swings. BPD impacts the way you think and feel about yourself and others, and it can interfere with functioning in everyday life.
A person with borderline personality disorder may struggle to maintain consistent employment, complete school, or have long-lasting, healthy relationships due to extreme emotions, distorted self-image, impulsivity, or fear of abandonment or of being alone.
Borderline personality disorder typically begins by early adulthood. Therapy can help treat BPD so that it may gradually get better with age.

Antisocial personality disorder (ASPD), sometimes referred to as sociopathy, is a mental health condition expressed in irresponsible, exploitative, and guiltless behaviors where the individual consistently shows no regard for right or wrong and no empathy for others. Those with this condition may lie, become violent, or act impulsively, which may correlate with the development of issues of substance abuse.
Antisocial personality disorder is known to begin in childhood or adolescence and is fully manifested in the individual’s 20s or early 30s. Individuals with antisocial personality disorder may manipulate or antagonize others without remorse and often fail to fulfill responsibilities to family or work.
Typical behaviors of antisocial personality disorder include criminality, impulsivity, lack of empathy, manipulation of others for personal gain, failure to sustain consistent employment, and failure to develop or sustain stable interpersonal relationships.

Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental health disorder in which the individual has an inflated sense of self-importance or superiority, and a strong desire to be recognized or admired borne out of a lack of self-esteem or insecurity.
Those with narcissistic personality disorder may have little regard for others’ feelings or may feel superior to others, yet struggle with poor self-image and vulnerability to criticism. This personality disorder can be treated with psychotherapy.
Over time, therapy may help an individual with narcissistic personality disorder to reduce or resolve tendencies to behave in socially distressing ways or to recover the ability to function in relationships and in other aspects of life that may be limited by this mental health issue.
If you or a loved one is struggling with symptoms of narcissistic personality disorder, contact Charlotte Therapy Center today.
