Hi- I am new at using the computer for conversation but old with my copendency. I have made many good changes but still struggle with family of origin issues. I can't seem to let go of wanting my dying mothers approval. Of course, I was the "good girl" of the family and this was alway my role. Lately I feel like Ferris Buellers sister(if you saw the movie). I can't seem to let go of mom not seeing me for who I am and taking the back seat to my alcoholic sibling. I realize I am suppose to feel good about myself for me and I pretty much do except when conversations come up about excuses for the alcoholic. I find myself trying to prove to mom, who is in denial, about how this is affecting us and it always comes back to me not being understanding enough. Does anyone know what I am saying?
