Marilyn Monroe is probably the most famous actresses of all time. He plays a number of roles and assumes different personality traits for every one. What is very ironic and interesting about him is that he’s known to suffer from Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD).
This means that everything that’s shown is classic BPD symptoms both on screen and outside of his personal life. Ms Monroe continuously struggled to define her own persona, even although many of us think we know what sort of person she is from her public persona.
Here are the traits that define someone with BPD and how it manifests itself.
Understanding this kind of mental sickness
BPD must be understood for what it’s, a form of mental sickness. This is a condition that severely impacts a person’s ability to control their emotions.
This loss of emotional control often results in extreme behavior. Acting impulsively and having wild mood swings are just two of the classic symptoms of BPD.
Someone with BPD will tend to hold the extreme view that they see something as very good or very bad. There is seldom a middle ground with BPD.
This volatility creates emotional instability and threatens relationships when someone with BPD exhibits such mood swings and engages in dangerous and impulsive behavior.
People with BPD are often at higher risk for self-harm and suicidal behavior. Sadly, Marilyn Monroe proving that in a way his life seems to have ended.
Contrary to yourself
One of the ways BPD manifests itself is in the way that a person with the disorder tends to present a public form of their personality that’s very different from how they feel inside.
It is a kind of chameleon-like existence where you are seen as one of a kind in public but your private inner thoughts and feelings are foreign to your outer personality look and behavior.
Someone like Marilyn Monroe is an incredible example of what it means to be someone with BPD. He adapts roles and acts through public appearances, but possibly feels very different on the inside to what we all see.
Other things happened
Often there are competing diagnoses and BPD is only one problem that a person is trying to overcome.
BPD can often be the most controlling disorder and takes on a leading role over other problems such as eating disorders. Feelings can often be channeled through BPD but become distorted.
For that reason it is generally best to target BPD as a precedence when looking to help someone overcome their problem. Once you have more control over your feelings and understand what is going on inside, it can generally help other treatments to work.
Marilyn Monroe portrayed her life, both publicly and privately, as a result of her BPD. Do you recognize any of these features?
Diagnosing and treating BPD can make a big and positive difference.
