Abusive behaviour by family

I come across this often in my practise. Clients who take emotional and verbal abuse from their family members only because they’re family. They support the pain and struggles of their loved ones and in turn they’re subjected to one or more of the following. If some of these are happening to you then please evaluate the situation carefully.
Just because you’re empathetic and loving doesn’t give anyone the right to trample on your feelings.
