Somali culture and codependency

Why is this never talked about in our community? So many somalis are miserable because of this. Sometimes they're not aware of it.How do we break away from this toxicity? I am a victim because i relied on my parents for so long as result made some regretful decisions as . Only learning about this now...i hate it to be honest.

Most somalis dont even believe in mental health.
First step is the willingness or the desire to improve. Thats where our people fall short.
They are so comfortable with being dysfunctional its unbelievable.
