Breaking the need to be codependent
Friday, May 10, 2019
Currently I am working on not being co dependent. Seems easy but it is so hard. I want my kids to tell me things, but not everything because it is hard not to want to try to fix it. Well that has been my job since they were my babies.
I want my husband to be more responsible. Why should I have to bring laundry downstairs, wash it, dry it ,fold it, bring it back upstairs and put it away? He can help bring it downstairs and back upstairs🤦🏻♀️. Before I did it all and now I am changing the rules of 29 years.
Before I wanted to make his life as easy as possible but lately I have been asking him to help. Being an empty nester is such new and foreign ground for us.
I am changing the rules with my family and I am empowered by making them accountable and responsible. I am enjoying not fixing them and their problems now it is time to focus on me.
