A new study illustrates the link between reduced working memory capacity and dysphoria, a significant and prolonged depressed mood related to clinical depression. Building on the knowledge that dysphoric individuals (DIs) and clinically depressed people maintain their attention on 'mood-congruent' information longer than people without depressed mood, researchers carried out three studies to test both working memory and processing speed.

New findings on Borderline Personality Disorder "Kings and Queens of Chaos" https://www.psychologytoday.com/articles/201308/kings-and-queens-chaos
The condition is now believed to be 55 percent heritable." Increasingly, the origins of the condition are seen as a classic interplay of nature and nurture.The hostile, conflicted relationships that evolve are not, as traditionally thought, a result of poor parents, but of parents whose parenting is shaped by a difficult child. It might take an extraordinarily calm parent to keep a genetically loaded infant from developing the disorder."
There's a very good book on the subject by psychiatrist Jerold Kreisman "I Hate You—Don't Leave Me: Understanding the Borderline Personality"

Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."
