From Latin limitrŏphus, bordering is something bordering or confining . The concept is linked to the notion of limit (a real or imaginary line that separates two territories, countries or lands).
A political-administrative division presents various regions differentiated by limits imposed by the man . The F'sterritorial hoots they suppose these limits, which mark the divisions. The contiguous regions are bordering (share limits).
For example: Brazil , Uruguay , Chile , Bolivia and Paraguay are countries bordering from Argentina , as this country shares borders with the aforementioned nations. Instead, Argentina it is not borderline of Ecuador , Colombia or from any other country that is not among those mentioned above.
Russia and China they are the countries that limit with the greatest amount of nations : each one has fourteen bordering countries. It is important to note that bordering can also refer to other entities beyond countries, such as provinces, cities, etc.
The term is also used to name everything related to limits. In this way, we can talk about border conflict or border dispute : "Colombia and Ecuador are involved in a border conflict for decades", "The president announced the solution of the border dispute".
Within the scope of psychology, we also have to emphasize that the term we are now analyzing is used. Specifically in it there is what has been called borderline personality disorder (BPD).
Very strong genetics or emotional factors, such as being a victim of sexual abuse or a violent act of another kind as well as facing a hard separation, are some of the causes that can lead to a person suffering from this disease that is characterized , above all, because of the instability of the former both in regard to his mood as well as his image or relations with other individuals.
Patients with this disorder are obsessed with suffering any type of rejection but they also have other symptoms that are equally significant:
• They are not able to control their emotions.
• They have compulsive behavior, both in terms of shopping, drug abuse, eating, sex or self-harm.
• It should also be noted that they have the feeling that they are bad people.
• They often experience episodes of paranoia.
• They are not able to assume their mistakes and opt for any defense mechanism, which, as a rule, usually consists of blaming others for those.
• At no time are they able to control their anger.
The treatment that exists for people suffering from this borderline personality disorder basically consists of the intake of antidepressant medications as well as individual, family and group therapies.
Borderline, on the other hand, can be used to name something that is close to something else , either physically or symbolically: “The singer surprised with a declaration bordering on discrimination”, "I don't want anything bordering on smuggling in this city".
