My sister said even when I was young I always excused everyones bad behavior, forgave easily. Even the abusive alcoholic mother that I had. I look at myself as being understanding and forgiving, yes Im a work-alholic and I put myself around people that need help. And my profession puts me in a helping mode. I do have trouble doing things for myself I put everyone first, Im confused because I have been told I am codependent, and I do fall into every aspect of the definition, when I was young I always tried to keep things perfect in hopes that nothing would take place with my mother. She was a very abusive woman, in every way. My sister is ill and her and I are very close, and Im getting frustrated because she is keeping me at arms length with the results. And Im bothered that I have no control over all of this, I care so much but yet is that being codependent, I know all of this doesnt make much sense but I am really confussed!!!!! Any advice or prayers would be much appreciated!!!!
