You’re absolutely right; self-awareness is the key to all healing and it’s a tool most people lack. Like my ex-husband, many are quick to make it the other person’s problem (i.e., “My mother has a problem letting go.”) instead of taking a deeper look into how they may be enabling that person and fueling the problem.
