Hi I’m Rachel, and this is who I am.
I was born in the 1990's as an identical twin. I grew up in an environment where my parents were stressed out due to emotional and financial issues. My dad lost his business when we were young, which caused a great deal of stress on our family. It also caused my father to feel depressed and resentful. My mom, who is co-dependent because she never got her needs met as a child, unconsciously, felt that having children would fulfill her. However, becoming a mother caused her to be very controlling, which in turn caused my sister and me a great amount of stress and anxiety, from which I am now healing.
