Kick It with Donna V. episode 8
Enabling the Disabled
What do I mean by disabled? I’m not talking about people in a wheelchair. I’m talking about people you love who depend on you because you continue to enable their behavior. You taking on this behavior is nothing but a burden to you.
I enabled my own behavior when my kids were in school by doing their projects. Why did I do this? Was the grade for them or was it for me? Apparently, it was for me. I recently ended a relationship with a family member because the burden of that person’s behavior became too much to bear.
People will always show their true colors. Are you dealing with any relationships where you feel used, abused and disrespected?
