In this month’s Open Letter, I made the following claim;
Velociraptors do not respect boundaries. They actively avoid them and work skillfully to get around them. Even people with the best of intentions can step all over your boundaries. I also wrote about the many ways people can react to being asked to respect your boundaries. See: Temper Tantrum
Sometimes when someone says, “Please respect this boundary.”
I hear, “You hate me. You don’t want to be with me. You think I am terrible and awful and fugly.”
This seemed like a good time to bring back the word ‘fugly’.
It’s easy to recognize the velociraptors in others. It’s not so easy to understand why we start tapping electric fences for weakness when someone asks us for a little space.
*SIGH* Thank God for therapy, #amiright.
