Do you have trouble saying ‘No?’
Are you all caught up in others’ problems while ignoring your own needs?
Do you have trouble standing up for what you believe in the face of opposing views?
Do you constantly fly under the radar so you won’t be noticed?
Is your learned coping style intended to keep you out of trouble, but preventing you from being an independent, self-determining human?
Those of us who grew up in dysfunctional families lack healthy personal boundaries. Most of us learned early that we had no right to privacy, respect or even safety.
Survival lay shrinking ourselves.
