In a traditional family, the last thing you can be is who
you really are, but it's time for Jacqueline Sanchez to find
the woman underneath it all...
Everyone has their role. My mother is the martyr, my father
the distant unapproachable figure, and Noel, with a few
brief stints in jail, is considered misunderstood, not a
handsome loser. Yolie is just outspoken, not a miserable
bitter shrew, which would be her clinical diagnosis in the
"real" world. And the rest of my brothers and sisters have
problems that my parents consider normal, like bad
marriages, unruly children, and too many bills. So is it a
surprise that I'm considered the troublemaker of the family?
Not happy at home? Move away for college. Hate your job?
Find another one. Fallen out of lust, er, love with your
husband? Divorce him. I, so far, am the anomaly--or
flake--in the family because I'm vocal about how unnecessary
it is to be unhappy, and how important it is to do something
about it to change your circumstances (thank you, Zoloft!).
If I had it my way, my whole family would be comparing
dosages at the dinner table the way some families talk about
sports or politics...
