Q & A – My personality disordered parent is ruining my life

I’m sorry to hear that you are struggling with a difficult parent. It can be incredibly challenging to navigate a relationship with a parent who has a personality disorder, especially when it is causing harm to your life.

It’s important to remember that you are not responsible for your parent’s behavior or their disorder. You have the right to set boundaries and prioritize your own well-being, even if it means limiting contact with your parent or seeking professional help.

Here are a few steps you can take to cope with a parent who has a personality disorder:

  1. Educate yourself: Learning more about your parent’s disorder can help you understand their behavior and develop strategies for managing it.
  2. Seek support: Surround yourself with people who are supportive and understanding, whether that’s friends, family members, or a therapist.
  3. Set boundaries: It’s important to establish boundaries with your parent and communicate them clearly. This may involve limiting contact or setting specific expectations for how you will interact.
  4. Take care of yourself: Make sure you prioritize your own mental and physical health. This may mean practicing self-care, seeking therapy, or taking time away from your parent if needed.

Remember, you are not alone in dealing with a difficult parent. There are resources available to help you cope and manage the impact on your life.
