how to stand firm in the midst of family drama

How to stay aligned and in your power in challenging family dynamics and expectations

A reader’s dad has recently passed away: “My family and I are in the process of working on ways to best care for Mom. I can feel pressure/expectations from them that I am/will be the person who will care for her. The reason for this has never been plainly expressed but it’s been made clear to me in subtle ways that since I don’t have a 9-5 job, I’m not married, don’t have kids or dogs, then I’m the best person for the job.
