enmeshment

Hi, I hope everyone is doing okay today. I was talking with my therapist today and she says my family is so seriously enmeshed it tops off the check list in the books. She says it is up to me to begin to break the cycle. Decades of enmeshment. Serious enmeshment. It isn't the first time I've heard it but it came down hard on me today. Pounded into me. Where to start when I feel like a kid in my family and everyone else a giant? Does anyone have any similar experiences they can share with me? I would really appreciate any insights you may have. Thanks. iwanttolive
