"You have to be me to judge me." Sometimes a person thinks they know what's going on with another person. What they're going through, that their pain is not important. 9/10 times, they have no idea. That pain that they think is unimportant? Silly? You're not even scratching the surface of what is really happening to them.
I would add that it has been suggested by professionals in the field of mental health that people with BPD tend to be emotionally stunted - often around the age that a traumatic event may have occurred. So if a traumatic event occurred at the age of 3, would you call a 3 year old manipulative if they struggle with regulating emotions or have fear of abandonment etc?
