BIG changes are coming.. like I need anymore... scared but...not first time...
I did it.. took me 24 years to do it... but... my daughter pushed me to my limits - which have been severely compromised , I warned her - I no longer could be her slave.
I've been at my house not even 48 hours and she asked ME when I was leaving...
THAT was IT! I told HER to leave
and ...I mustered up that courage...because of the courage that I SEE here on SG!
and...today.... is a new beginning....
Yes....I am scared to death.... should have done it years ago...when timing would have been better......but....I am tired of her self centered abuse.... so.... Dear Lord give me
strength because I am going to need it.... I just tossed some more balls up in the air for me to juggle.......
Thank you Lace,
I have been on the path of discovering that "too much of a good thing is as just as bad as not enough" - so I have been setting boundaries with all others but with my daughter she has this svengali power to walk right through those boundary walls..
But, I know I must change that too, because it has proven to be so toxic and literally life threatening to my body as my life force was being sucked right out of me by all the people "using and abusing me" through appealing to my misguided belief that it was my duty to take care of everyone. Sure does help to know the truth - it really does set you free.
Balance and boundaries.
Great job standing up for yourself!!!
By doing this you are helping both of you.
Thank you so much tools you are a wise friend,
I don't have a husband, BF and God is my only helper, I have a ton of responsibilities hanging over me that REQUIRE completion (not a choice they are MUST DOs) and my body is not going for this at all. I feel like I was traveling at 150mph when my body said "I demand to be restored/you have drained me and I cannot go on this way / I am running on empty" and I hit THE wall and feel all the momentum behind me is going to crush me.
Other than any angel God sends my way, my daughter is "my" idea of only person capable of physical "work related type help" I need on the old So I can focus on create new income in moving forward. So...this is real scary to me. and no I do not have $$ for counseling.
