Therapy is key: Long-term psychotherapy is key to treatment of personality disorder though meds may have a role to play for certain symptoms. Mindfulness training can help. The kind of therapy shown to be most effective in studies is a kind of group therapy called dialectical behavior therapy. To get better, commit to longer term therapy starting with dbt. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Longstanding traits: Personality disorders are characterized by longstanding behaviors that lead to impairments because of a person's interactional style and temperament. There are several "clusters": a) isolative, distrustful interactions with others; b) intense and/or destructive relationships, and c) unusual styles of interactions. The key is that these are chronic styles, not episodes such as depression.
