A reader commented on my last post, saying “It’s hard to enforce a boundary when you don’t even know it’s being violated.”
Can boundaries protect you from a manipulator?
A friend brought to my attention a post on a related website asserting that “when we become romantically involved with a sociopath we PARTICIPATE, in one way or another, in our own exploitation.”
Take a look at the illustration of Lil’ Red.
She’s really changed, hasn’t she? A big part of that was learning to be her own protector. She went through quite a trauma with the wolf, and big changes were needed.
