    Interesting that this article implies that the weakness and subsequent encroachment of interpersonal boundaries is in one direction, and the consequence is a victimization of the individual with the boundary issues. What about the abuse done by that person who does not respect the boundaries of others and through a sense of entitlement, pushes in the other direction, victimizing the other? I think that both directions of such incursion should be mentioned as they are equally possible and probably occur in the same person at varying times with others.

    Another version is the child of alcoholics who is a people pleaser and gets him/herself into the “like me” mode of non-confrontation. The fear to set healthy boundaries results. He enables others to ‘use’ him and then is distraught that his life is all about drama and needs not being met. He feels powerless to CHANGE others, ignoring the reality that he is the one who needs to establish boundaries, say NO when needed and put himself into a self-loving position. Very complex web in a co-dependent family where one blobs into another.
