In our last blog post, we discussed how many high conflict divorces contain at least one individual suffering from a personality disorder. We also talked about catastrophic thinking and how it can affect the life of children and adults alike.
The next few posts will further explain personality disorders by introducing a few more that are commonly seen in a high conflict divorce scenario.
Grandiosity can be a frustrating trait to deal with, and often times can be a main contributor to a high conflict divorce. People with this trait believe they are never wrong. They also consider themselves to be better and more important than just about everyone else. This is problematic if there are children involved, particularly due to the fact that many parents first priority is their children. A parent who has a sense of grandiosity may not put a child’s needs first.
This exaggerated sense of self-importance may also lead to unfair judgments and unreasonable expectations. They may also feel entitlement and justification for unrealistic expectations of their partner while co-parenting.
