      Secret-keeper: Holding a confidence tight and safe

 

Maybe a label that is not on this list better describes your role.  Whatever the case, you may find it helpful to identify other family members' parts.  This will help you more clearly define your role. 

So review the list again and try to determine what role each member of your family plays.  By identifying your role in the family, you will become more empowered to fulfill it if you choose or carve out a healthier pattern if need be.
