Although beginning to set boundaries is definitely easier said than done, each time you challenge that voice in your head that says you need to agree or you are not loved/worthy/kind/good enough, or any other fear that fuels the fawning response, it becomes less and less intimidating if you are engaging with a supportive person. This last point is very important because if you are in a co-dependent or abusive relationship, fawning is likely a way you are able to maintain safety, just as discussed earlier about a child in a toxic household. In this case, couples counselling or individual counselling would be necessary to adjust to relational norms established without healthy boundaries.
