A.J. Mahari on Video about Tough Love and BPD
In a two hour talk given to family members and loved ones of those with Borderline Personality Disorder, author, speaker, life coach and strategist, A.J. Mahari talks about tough love. Mahari widens the perspective on what tough love really means and is about.
She firmly believes that tough love applied in a balanced way – as she defines tough love – can be crucial to recovery from BPD and just as crucial for loved ones to not only develop and maintain consistent boundaries but also very crucial for loved ones to not end up in the enabler role. Enabling holds those with BPD back, it does not help them.
In the first part of this 2 part video lecture Mahari explores the reality of defining what tough love is – what it can mean and how tough love does not have to mean a lack of empathy or compassion. Mahari talks about what love means to add to understanding the application of it generally and within the framework of a love that is “tough”. She also addresses the challenge loved ones of BPD face when trying to understand and implement tough love within the broader context of the polarization in society that exists along side of the polarization within Borderline Personality Disorder.
