Help Others to Stop the Bleeding... We have new members on the "Undecided" board that are living with a BPD spouse or partner and trying to make that "Stay" or "Go" decision. Can you take a moment to stop by and offer any advice you may have. We want to encourage members there to use the very basic communication tools, boundaries, and time-outs - we are calling this "Stop the bleeding".

Is it common or possible for a pwBPD to learn to self-validate and to self-soothe in all cases if it's necessary? Is that the point/end result of DBT, etc.?  Or will it always be up to me as long as I choose to be in this relationship?  I'm sorry if this is one of those questions that has been asked and answered many times before.  There's a lot of information to absorb here.
