I agree. Came from the same situation. I was taught to be a mom pleaser and devalued when I tried to become my own person, which is the healthy progression. Anytime I tried to become healthy I was devalued. One thing I have done to progress my health is to reparent myself, give myself the love and compassion that I tried to give my own children. And to support myself as my own mother in difficult situation and in my successes. It really has been life changing. This was introduced by my group therapist that I attended when my spath was discarding me. So lucky to have found this support and this new way of life. Being my own loving mother.
