Like a movie of a breaking glass tumbler in reverse, I am just thwooping backwards in time to try and understand why my family has shunned me. I know I was parentified, but I don't think the scapegoating really began until I was about 25-30. Is this possible?

Hi Quilter,

Almost anything is possible in human relationships. Could it be that someone else was filling the scapegoat role up until you were 25? If they left the family or changed their interactions with the family, the family could have transferred the role to you at that time. It may also have been that the family didn't need a scapegoat until then. It's hard to say without knowing the situation.
