Homeostasis: a relatively stable state of equilibrium or a tendency
toward such a state between the different but interdependent elements
or groups of elements of an organism, population, or group.

[note to self] remember to include stuff here about family systems theory,
and a person who is changing their boundaries for the better-
the rest of their family will fight them (and they will feel blindsided)

a person who is setting boundaries, is also upsetting the status quo
upsetting the homeostasis of their family
