I started a new thread, because it didn't seem "Psychology" related. But I wanted to make sure that you saw I thanked you. What you said was one of those little things that niggle in the subconscious before clarifying a situation.

I realized that I can only change myself, and can only choose either to get involved, or to feel responsible, but not both. My mother doesn't want me to get involved, so I have clarified the limits of my responsibility under those circumstances. That's really all I had the power to do.

Thanks for your part in my Ah Hah! experience.

(Hmmm... Maybe it is "Psychological" since one of the ways my therapist tends to help me is by implanting those ideas. Not this time. He's overwhelmed by my mother too.)
