Now I’m wondering if Kierkegaard had Borderline Personality Disorder because of the idea of leaking water. See the middle paragraph of this Essentials of Psychology page which mentions him. Borderlines “bleed out” emotionally. They go to the very depths of despair more easily than most people.
This is not to say that their opinions are of no value. I keep going back to Girl Interrupted where she sees through her therapist. If I remember correctly, it was her natural empathy that saved her. She just had to learn boundaries.
