Instability of relationships.

Instability of social and interpersonal relationships is the cornerstone of borderline personality disorder (bpd). Constantly fighting to avoid real or imagined abandonment, bpds alternate between extremes of idealizing and devaluing those who attempt to get involved with them.

Long-term drug use is more related to a substance abuse disorder. Paranoia is an essential feature of paranoid personality disorder. Theatricality is central to a diagnosis of histrionic personality disorder. Lack of remorse may be present in antisocial personality disorder.
