    Best answer: The only person who can break this pattern is you, and remember, there is no obligation to maintain the role assigned to you by your family. If you want a different outcome, you need to make different choices. You are not responsible for other people and so if you truly want to focus on your own wellbeing, it is essential that you re-set the boundaries with everyone in your life. Also, consider if any of those relationships are toxic and if so, important you take an emotional step back. Be open to realizing your choices up to now is detrimental to your emotional, mental and physical wellbeing, so if you want that to change, you must make different choices. Given your current fragile state, have a conversation with your GP and ask for a referral to a professional mental healthcare professional, so you can safely peel back the emotional layers and come to better understand yourself and why you carry this perceived burden to be everything to everyone else. The people in your life do not want you to change because - for them - they are complacent and comfortable with you being their 'go to ' person. They will not change, so you must if you want to find joy and peace in your own life. Talk with a trusted friend so you do not feel alone and see your GP as soon as you can. This is time to take care of you.

    Best answer: Important to remember, there is a difference between being blunt and being rude, but some people blur the boundaries between the two. Also, blunt versus rude is also about the intention of the person making the comment. Someone who is blunt speaks their mind without hesitation, they are direct and straightfoward and there is no bulls**t about them. This can make others uncomfortable and for some, can be confronting because a truth is presented to them and they shun it, rather than embrace/process what is being said. Someone being blunt does not automatically suggest they lack respect for another, they are simply saying it straight without any softening around the edges. If the recipient of the comments feels attacked, offended, hurt, angry or shocked by what is being said, they may interpret this bluntness as being rude. And while those feelings are valid for the recipient, this does not equate to the blunt individual deliberately intending to cause an emotional wound.
