What did I do to heal myself

Started in my 20's when I heard that my 19 year old sister had gotten pregnant from a colleague that she worked with at KMart. My parents were angry and I felt like I had to do something to keep the family together. I didn't know what to do or say. So I turned to a therapist, hoping to explain the urgency of the situation and get some professional insight for what steps I should take to bring the family together.

Needless to say, the therapist recognized that the issue wasn't about me helping my parents or sorting out things for my sister, but about the nature of the role I perceived for myself in the family .
