Thank goodness that you have met a therapist that you seems to be the right fit for you.
Once your role changes in the family dynamic,it will be for the members to either accept or reject your placement.
Many people don't like change and if acceptance is welcomed,realize it will be a gradual process.
It's not selfish to put yourself first,when you feel pressured.
You have found the strength to do something about it.....
Please try not to lose sight of your main objective.
