I’m too much — too loud, too sick, too troublesome to bother with. In this video, I’ll talk about what it means and how it feels to be “too much” for people as a result of C-PTSD (complex post-traumatic stress disorder) or BPD (borderline personality disorder). I’ll share some of my most painful personal experiences, as well as tips for how to set boundaries and develop healthier relationships with people.

You’re not “too much,” okay? You’re just enough. Sexual trauma and BPD symptoms don’t need to get in the way of you maintaining fulfilling relationships. You might just have to make a few tweaks along the way!

WHAT IS TOXIC EMPATHY? (BPD Relationships)

Hi, I’m Leif E. Greenz. In today’s video, I’ll be talking about how borderline personality disorder (BPD) and complex post-traumatic stress disorder (C-PTSD) can lead to what I call “toxic empathy,” which is essentially empathy that doesn’t serve you — or worse, empathy that destroys you.

I’ve notoriously made friends with lots of shady characters who use, abuse, and exploit me. Why? What is it about toxic people that PTSD and BPD sufferers are so drawn to? Today, we’ll set out to find the answers.

In the second half of the video, I’ll discuss how to make room for healthier relationships. I’ll also introduce the dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) concept of relationship circles and help you decide which relationships should go where.

Thanks for watching. Please feel free to ask any questions or submit video requests in the comments and I’ll be sure to reply.

Love,

Leif E. Greenz
