Great article!  Thank you for sharing it here.  Recognizing and acting what is "my stuff" or "their stuff" is so important.  I find my personal weakness is trying to take responsibility for someone else's feeling.  This article helped with that clarity.

Good article, punchy and well written.

I know that 'taking responsibility for someone's feelings " schtick. Managing my mother's emotional crises from a young age burned that deep into my brain. It's almost a super power! It's what made me vulnerable to men with PDs, that and a few other classic co-dependant traits. Luckily I know this now, my emotional regulation is greatly improved and I have a great measure of peace. Been a long time coming..

Here's to all the dragon hearted people on the forum.
It gets better. It has to.
