They have a feeling of being left out, ignored, neglected, unwanted, not seen as a child, by parents, siblings, friends or colleagues. Or they fear that will happen. They fear not to become accepted and that will stay single, alone. But they want to belong to the group, so they adapt. They can become very good workers, good helpers such as secretaries in order to get accepted.
A typical situation is that of a woman in the wedding night who gets disappointed in her husband. She has idealised the love and then her husband is egotistical, not attending her needs and falling asleep after his satisfaction. She has the feeling that she has to adapt to her husband and thus says nothing about her disappointment. She keeps going on in a situation were she feel not fully accepted and almost pushed out. The marriage is in a way already over before it started. Her silent grief is expressed in a cystitis with burning tears.
