Do you think that an individual who comes from a family where physical and emotional abuse is prevalent, that it is hard to create boundaries? I love hindsight, but having foresight would be so much better. With hindsight I know it is not rocket science to work out that if someone is abusing you via phone messages to simply turn off the phone. I don't know why it took so long for me to work that simple little problem out. The only thing I can think why I let abuse to continue was that as a child I was not in the position to stop abuse, to walk away turn off a phone.or have my own sacred space. That is the only rationale I can come with as to why as a middle aged adult thought I was powerless to stop abuse. To quote Nelson Mandala "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure".
