Been there but i managed to stay sober.
When we're sick were easy targets for others to blame us for all that they dont like about their own lives. When i was a 'chronic people pleaser' i'd take the blame for everything just so long as it didnt interfere with my drinking.
After a while in AA i now know better and have somehow outgrown the need to sell my soul to please other people. After all i was sick at the time and today i'm just so glad to be alive.
When members of my family moan at me today i ask them if they're not happy now when are they planning to be? Because where we came from we'd have a brass neck not to be!
