There is a fine line between being generous, and giving so much OF yourself that you have nothing left to give TO yourself. And that can be dangerous in many ways. One of several stories of growing up with an alcoholic mother. by Refocus On Being
"My mother is bipolar and my father is an alcoholic and an addict. He takes what he pleases and he offers nothing. No money, no support. I’ve done what I could to help raise my siblings.

And they deserve better."
