Introduction
They want to have a happy family, where everyone can enjoy life and where there is enough money. But there always seems to be something lacking, or something is going wrong. They adapt to the others, feeling they have to be supportive to let things work out well. But in the end they feel they have done too much, they have given themselves away, that others have taken advantage of them. They have overworked themselves and did not get the pleasure in life owing to demands of parents, children or spouse.
