Basically, when people are prescribed sub-optimal antibiotics or given a insufficient dose, or more importantly if somebody stops taking their antibiotics before the course of treatment is complete, it allows some of the more resilient bacteria to survive. Antibiotic resistance is actually somewhat gradual rather than "it works or it doesn't". The more resistant strains will survive the incomplete course and without competition from the other strains the resistant ones will propagate freely. Over time this selection leads to strains of bacteria that are so tolerant to the antibiotic that it's no longer feasible to treat patients with it because its impossible to get enough antibiotic to the right location.

TB is a good example of this. Effective treatment will requires course of various different antibiotic cocktails for up to 6 months to ensure complete eradication of bacteria. However after 4+ weeks you will likely feel fine and symptoms will be gone, so a lot of people stop taking their medicine because they feel better. But TB can be dormant in the body for decades, often latent TB presence will never flair up into an active infection, but it can do if the body/immune system are under immense stress.

XDR TB takes 2 years of antibiotic cocktail treatment to eliminate, as it's resilient to the most effective antibiotics against TB as well as most of what are called "second line" antibiotics. If XDR TB is allowed to go even further, and people don't take their 2 year treatment plans seriously enough it could end up being completely impossible to treat instead of really difficult.
