I just had a revelation that one of the issues for me is that on some level, I still feel my mother had the right to do the things she did to me. As if it was ok for her to use get her needs met through me.

This distortion came out as I was reading several posts this morning. I don't know what else is around this idea, and I think it is something for my therapist. I think it has to do with how I see myself.

I think this is a testament to the value of what we are doing here.
