In what situations do I feel excessive responsibility for other people?
I feel responsible for other people's feelings/moods/attitudes including those of my AS. If someone is sad, I feel it's my responsibility to make them happy. If someone is upset, I feel it's my responsibility to calm them down. If two people can't get along, I feel it is my responsibility to help them see the others' point of view. If someone is hurt, I feel it is my responsibility to heal them. If someone is sick, it's my responsibility to cure them. If someone is having a bad day, I feel it is my responsibility to make their day better.
Crap. I'm WAAAAY to responsible for everyone but myself. No wonder I feel like my life is out of control!
Ooooohh.......I really didn't like that question.

Kindeyes... This question hit HOME for me. I have become addicted to volunteer work, so much that it effects my ability to be a good mom & my business. At first I thought that the Lord had cursed me with the responsibility. Now I realize I'm trying to fix everyone.
My dad is dying due to his drinking. And instead of dysfunction taking a back seat it has increased 300%. I am so happy to have found this site. It is too late for me to change my relationship with my father, but I can change myself and have a better life!
