I’m 27, and live with my parents. I’m being treated as a ‘pet’ or something to cheer up or spend time with them. so they only want me to have enough money to be their daughter and another role is not of interest. so that’s what I do, I’m not really able to put my thoughts first or go with the flow of my own life – i’m sort of pulled by them, and feel like my thoughts are influenced by their desires and I don’t feel that my desires are a guiding force for me. Obviously I’d like my desires to be the guiding force, but either a lack of trust in myself or the power that they have over me is stronger. How do I take back control of my life?
