Forgoing short-term pleasure and comfort is important in order to complete day-to-day routines, responsibilities, and long-term goals. As a result, a person requires realistic limits. Individuals who did not have healthy limits set for them as children often have a hard time accepting realistic limits as a core need in adulthood. When introducing the concept of realistic limits to such individuals, their healthy adult side can appear to understand the concept even if their impulsive side rejects it altogether.
A new approach to the problem uses new model reconceptualized the "realistic limits" core need as "freedom" instead.
Clients with this presenting problem are afraid that "limits" will take away their comfort and freedom
To cope with this fear, these clients develop approval/status seeking behaviors
Impulsive and entitled behavior is also a way to save comfort for them
