Growing up alone

I have an older brother, a younger sister, a mom, and a dad. I grew up with all of them, but I have always felt alone. As soon as problems arose, my brother left and never turned back. I was put on a side burner while my sister, who was spiraling out of control, became the main focus of our family. That was 10 years ago and it is still true today. My mom had, and still has, her own issues. My dad has a new family.

I just recently put a stop to me being the go-between for my parents.

I just recently put a stop to a completely destructive relationship with my sister.

I am now standing up for myself, as only I can and as only I will.

Good for you, lady. I had a fair share of toxicity in my family and I can't speak highly enough of boundary setting. Happy for this new chapter in your life. <3
