I feel short changed in life. My sibling has married off in

[64025]

I feel short changed in life. My sibling has married off into a 'healthy' and loving family. Supported by validation from a good spouse but I'm stuck trying to piece myself together alone. I came close to having a long term committed relationship on a few occasions but they never panned out. Many days I think it was for the better because I'm so broken. I couldn't be the proper supportive spouse. (Or parent). I need to get past this resentment. But I struggle on the how.

@nobodyyy after the passing of my parents, i have come to realize i am codependent. I never understood what shame meant but tonight i looked it up on youtube. And its definitely me. Anything i did was never good enough. So i think i actually decided i didnt want to be cut down for failing to be a proper spouse or parent. But now im seeking my self esteem to put myself together.

@zen-man thank you, i learned this thru watching youtube videos on codependency. I feel author and therapist Darlene Lancer hit home for me. Im so grateful for her website and channel.
