Thanks to gabbix2 and galkeepinon for your kind replies. This subject's been on my mind alot because of watching my step-daughter with my husband. He's wrapped around her little finger and she is SO sure of herself and her place in this world. It's stupid to feel anger at her for having what I wanted. Let me tell you, GREEN with envy.

My dad was distant, usually gone, and totally unpredictable. My mother was controlling and manipulative. She was way-above-average intelligence born into a poverty-stricken family. I was going to have all the opportunities she never had, whether I wanted them or not. I had to be perfect at everything. I was never allowed to be average. She sure had some mental and control issues. I eloped from college with my first controlling father figure. LOL

Did these 2 relationships mold me? Everything that's wrong with me can't be blamed on them. But I can trace alot of it to them. That's were it all began.
