Today we have the honor of hearing a story from Kellay Chapman. In the story, Kellay is ten years old and her brother is 15. Sometimes other family members take up so much emotional space in your home that there is no space left for your emotions. The result is that you can be made responsible for the emotions of other family members—you can be responsible for regulating their affect—but left utterly alone when you are dysregulated and in need of care. This is a horrible bind for a child to be put in.
