you find it difficult to refuse a request, which is uncomfortable / unprofitable (that is, you do not know how to say “no!”) friends, acquaintances, parents tell you how to live, how to educate children, how to build relationships with your husband / wife, what to wear, what to do, what not to do, etc. you use your personal time not as you would like other people allow themselves to open your phone, email, check your pockets, etc. you suffer regular humiliation and insults you suffer physical abuse you feel responsible for the feelings of others you experience a strong sense of guilt if you are unable to fulfill a request you are afraid to voice your opinion you are trying to be “good” Some of these points are applicable in the opposite direction. That is, if you behave this way in relation to other people, you are breaking other people’s boundaries. More precisely, in the relationship with these people or a specific person, the boundaries are blurred. It’s difficult to talk about a violation, because you cannot cross a line that does not exist.
