They often have situations where they are abused, neglected and hurt, both emotionally and physically. There is a strange combination of being self aware and having self-confidence and on the other hand letting themselves being abused.
They often start with a good family that breaks down; one of the parents die or depart after a divorce. Then they feel neglected and unloved. Or one of the parents becomes abusive, violent, beating and domineering. They have strong problems to maintain their self-respect and independence in those situations. There is a mixture of feeling like they belong to the group at one hand and feeling unappreciated and disrespected on the other hand. It feels like a violation of their integrity. They cannot understand that people behave abusively. They feel like a stranger in the world, even in their family since they are too sensitive and internally refined to be understood by most people.
Later in life the pattern becomes repeated with an abusive husband. In general it is more for women.
