Were I to reach out at all to my sibling, it would look like this. There is nothing else I can do for her, another casualty in her war on healthy family dynamics.
I know what you’re looking for. You won’t find it with purses, or in boxes, or from stores. It doesn’t come with a price tag. I know because, I was looking for it too, and to a degree, still am.
Find a therapist. Find someone who will listen to you, who will actively listen to what you have to say. And say it all. Everything. Don’t leave anything out.
And get away from our mother. Even if it’s across town, just get away. It gets harder, but it gets better. Breaking away, I mean. If you do nothing else, trust me on this.
I have things, including parts of my life, which I very much want to share with you, but until you realize how much better off you will be without our mother and begin to act accordingly, I can only reach out like this.
Find help. Find it sooner, not later.
