Keep typing a post up and then losing it, long ones!!!
I did go to Mums and saw my brother there too. I wrote down lots of thoughts about how differently we’ve turned out, him successful financially, outgoing ‘ bright and breezy’ mum says, and me, keeping quiet, not rocking the boat r being assertive. In counselling we looked at how my mum was saying to me, don’t be independent, stay like me, don’t blow your own trumpet, only Dad I allowed to do that.,’ Week today I can Ser that brother HAS been allowed to blow his own trumpettrumpet somehow, because he’s make, obviously. Why wasn’t I valued as a girl? Do you ever think that? I know mum thought she was entitled to nothing having Bern brought up very poor. And Dad has kept her down, so she pro probably thought it safer for me to do the same.
I’m really tired now so I might sleep and come back later.
Your very good for reading this
