This has been a challenge in my life. I had a abusive father growing up who often overstep his boundaries & never took my feelings into account. I had to deal with this on a daily basis when I was a kid growing up & as a result it created allot of defensiveness within me. Now as a father, I found that though I am not abusive on any level with my son; I have a challenge setting boundaries. He often rejects me and just doesn’t prioritize me the way I feel I deserve. What do I deserve? I deserve to be respected. How I do I feel respected when he replies to me.
