My resolution is to never allow myself to fall into the grip of family members who have unreasonable expectations of me and who do not acknowledge my being and do not recognize the person I am. I resolve to not seek that acknowledgement from those individuals and find it within myself.  I resolve to allow myself to give to and care for myself.

Sounds like a good affirmation to me. Sounds like there's a story or a learning curve behind it as well. I hope you are getting all the support you need, along with your self-validation. It's very hard sometimes.
