Personality Disorders

For individuals who suffer with personality disorders, it can be difficult to respond appropriately to social situations and the changing demands of life. They tend to be inflexible, possess a narrow view of the world and have difficulty working in groups. In addition, people with personality disorders can sometimes abuse drugs, alcohol and engage in reckless sexual behavior.

Types of Personality Disorders

Individuals with narcissistic personality disorder have an inflated sense of their self-worth and an unrealistic perception of their abilities. They are preoccupied with themselves, and often develop dependencies on substances. It’s common for Christians with narcissistic personality disorder to think that they have the answers, even when this isn’t the case.

Like narcissists, those who suffer from paranoid personality disorder often shut themselves off from the world. But rather than being because of their inflated sense of self, it’s due to their obsessive mistrust of others. They may possess a worldview marked by conspiracies, expectations of exploitation and hidden motives.

Borderline personality disorder is characterized by extreme instability in mood, self-image, behavior and personal relationships. People with borderline personalities are quick to engage in impulsive behavior and often require treatment for dual diagnosis due to the drugs and alcohol they use to cope with their polarizing shifts in mood and self-perception.

Though personality disorders are serious, with the proper treatment, you can become a contributing member of your community, nurture others and take a broader view of the world. Improving your relationship with God can help empower your recovery.
