*** One episode lampshades this behavior of hers. The family is kicked out of town because of Homer's drunken antics, Bart's destructive pranks, and Lisa's expensive environmental initiatives. At the townhall meeting when Marge tries to defend the family she's told she's the worst of them all for always turning the other way and acting as an enabler to their behavior.

* In an episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' it's revealed that Jean-Luc Picard has an artificial heart because back when he was at Starfleet academy he got in a fight with a group of Nausicaans and got stabbed in the heart, almost killing him. Because he regrets this part of his past life, and especially this event which more or less crippled him for life (at least in the sense that he needs regular checkups on his artificial heart), Q offers him the chance to go back in time and allow him to not fight the Nausicaans. The {{aesop}} was, of course, that this was actually a crucial point in his life that shaped his entire career. Without the stabbing that almost cost his life, Picard never realized how fragile life is and how important each moment must be, he never got the motivation, drive and ambition to live life to the fullest and become a great man, and he instead became basically an extreme doormat who never achieved anything of any importance, never taking any risks, always playing it safe and never seizing any opportunities to advance in his career.

* ''Film/{{Wanda}}'': Depression, low self-esteem, hopelessness—whatever the reason, Wanda is only too willing to let Mr. Dennis, a mean-spirited WouldHitAGirl bank robber, walk all over her. Wearing only dresses, wearing hats, driving the getaway car: she'll do what he tells her. When she comes back to the hotel room and finds her wallet in the trash can (Mr. Dennis had rifled through it and was preparing to leave) all she says is "How did that get there?" Most disturbing is when he slaps her across the face while she's chattering about going to get the hamburgers, and after a pause, she keeps chattering.

* King Tommen Baratheon on ''Series/GameOfThrones'' isn't a bad king because he makes bad decisions. He's a bad king because he can't make any decisions. Virtually everyone pushes him around. This comes about due to the decision to [[AgeLift age]] him up from being a nine year old, where his lack of independent decision-making was understandable.
