    Me

    So, I was raised in a manner where I always focused on making everyone else happy. Make sure Dad doesn't leave, Mom is happy and no body gets angry, upset or leave. I'm so sick of caring so much about everyone else and it not being returned. I am a sick people pleaser and I no...

    It Is Time.
