The roots of masochism are in early childhood, around the time when a toddler starts to show s of independence. A domineering or over-controlling parent who needs to have things their way can turn these s of independence into a battle of wills. There can only be one winner. Parents who consistently force their will onto leave the toddler with no option but to submit. The child has no way of fighting back. Giving in, submitting, becomes a behaviour the child needs to survive.
They can continue to treat themselves in the same way as their parents did: with contempt and lack of respect for themselves as an individual. Be patient. Above all, patience is the virtue you need to be with a masochistic partner. You may begin to feel persecutory towards your partner when they are shrugging their shoulders and giving up on something again. An angry reaction will make them shrink into themselves and they may not come out for days. Try to understand. Not always easy, but knowing the roots of their personality traits may help you develop more empathy towards them.
A masochist fears abandonment more than anything. Support them in it. Encourage open communication. Speaking their truth was unheard of.
