A tiny epiphany about dysfunctional family.

Started by

I had to step back and remember boundaries today. When one is crossed, I become resentful. And this happens easily. But, then I remember I control my boundaries and if doing something makes me resentful, I shouldn't do it. If I am blaming others, I am overdoing things. No one can tell me when I've done enough, because they will forever want more and more. Only I can draw that line. It was good to type this out and see it in print. I hope it may help someone else today too.


Sometimes seeing your words in black and white gives them more validation than simply hearing them in your head. Good points! Thanks for the reminder.
These are good things to be reminded of. Thank you for sharing.
