Pattern of Pathological Giving
This pattern of pathological giving, though not specific to women by any means, does correspond to what has been expected of females throughout thousands of years of male domination. Pathological giving may also be the result of the mind-warping influences of a dysfunctional family. As always, however, knowing where a problem comes from is not the same as solving it. It is possible to consider Passive Aggressives as being victims of forces beyond their control. That’s probably how they see themselves, and that in itself is a big part of the problem. Another law of nature is that victims victimize.
