I think you already know that it is a "superwoman" complex -- but more than that, I can't bear to disappoint people and I'm doing that a lot these days. Today my therapist said two things that I need to think about: 1) "you will never be the same person you were before -- you are changing and that is hard but necessary." 2)and "I think maybe one of the reasons you keep pushing me away and trying to handle it all yourself if that this is how you've internalized your mom and letting go of her vision of you is letting go of her."

That hurts a lot to think about. I told him I'm tired and have no fight left. Work issues are especially hard because I believe that I should figure out a way to make this all better. And maybe clearing the road for someone else to take over is the best way to do this.

And if I'm not here, I don't have to face anyone's disappointment. Not even his.
