Right now I am in the process of reorganizing my life. I have quit my job and have no kids. But I want to start a new career and outlook on life. I currently have to deal with my family who have never been supportive as that is not the type of family I have with the exception of one family member. My family
to put it bluntly are "me people" or "what can you do for me people." I am fine with that as my mother raised me to be independent. The problem is I don't have the energy or resources to support them
right now. I only have enough for myself physically, mentally, financially, and emotionally. I have a
dilemma because my mom also raised me to care for others and I even watched her care for others before herself so it's hard for me to cut the cord. But the thing is I am being dragged down in the
process. Sometimes I feel it is the moodiness of my depression guiding my reaction towards them other times I feel it's justified. Should I distance myself from my family until I am healthy and have the mindset to deal with them? Outside of my family I really don't have other people I can call on. But I feel that maybe it's better to be alone than swamped by people who aren't good for me right now.
