[Question] I’d like a little more insight into the whole enabling deal, [how to tell if you are an enabler, and what to do if you are an enabler].
[Michael Entity] There are various forms of “enabling,” but the generality is that this is a state of passive or active contribution to the harm of another person in the guise of support. The most definitive factor in determining if one is enabling, or not, is if your presence is contributing to the harm of yourself, or to the other. We emphasize “PRESENCE,” as it does not have to be an active presence, but can be a passive one, that helps contribute to the harm to yourself, or to the other.
