Much is written about personality disorders. With an understanding of the Principles, we can see that what we call personality disorders are the best efforts of extremely insecure people to define and control themselves. They either create a fantastic idea of themselves and present to the world as perfect, always right, and better/smarter than everyone else or they create a victim story in which their life is far worse than anyone else’s. They think they are always mistreated, misunderstood and taken advantage of by others. Those are the two sides of profound insecurity: thinking about oneself constantly and hiding fear behind braggadocio — positive or negative. If people calm down enough to just be in life and not worry about themselves and their image, the “disorders” fade.
