Codependency Support Group

Codependency is defined as someone who exhibits too much, and often inappropriate, caring for another person's struggles. A codependent person may try to change, or feel shame about their most private thoughts and feelings if they conflict with the other person's struggles. If you are on a journey towards self-love, this support group is for you. Join us and find others who are going through the same.

    Confused

    I know this will sound basic, but I need to know what are the bad effects on someone who is in a relationship with a codependent? My ex-boyfriend called himself "Mr. Codependent " as if it was something to be proud of.We were together for seven years but broke up and got back together many times.  Usually I broke it off.  I was afraid to say anything for fear he'd get insulted and angry.   He...

    Should I Feel Ashamed??

    6
    So, I'm feeling ashamed of wanting to break-up with my boyfriend right now.  Here's some background on why I want to break up with him.  I recently started living with my boyfriend and it was honestly going pretty well.  We had a few things here and there that he needed to change, such as cleaning up more after himself more.  Little stuff.  But then some indicators went off.  I noticed in...

    New member..Feeling confused and helpless

    New to the group.. have been with the same guy for several years, married for 1. The first year of marriage was as hard as everyone said it would be, but that's just it- it was really hard and I don't feel like we had that first year bliss. My husband suffers from anxiety and it can get very intense. I've pondered the idea before and shut it out, but within the past couple of weeks I've come to...

    I'm mostly new to this site.  Been doing some reading and now going to CODA.  I'm married for 6 years, 10 years total relationship.  I love my husband. He has broken everyone of my conditions that I set at the beginning.  No lieing, cheating, physical abuse.  We have been working on gaining custody of his daughter for 10 years. I also have daughters of my own.  The relationship was great in...

    I've recently come to find out that I am codependent. I've started attending CoDa meetings, started reading The New Codependent as well as the Codependent Anonymous Big Book. I left a pretty bad addiction almost 6 years ago. Year's before that and mostly in the last 6 years I have focused hard on many changes I needed to make. One thing I have done is avoid intimate relationships. I always...

Each one has a special purpose in my life, and Ihave a role to play in making an effort to work on all my shortcomings regarding them. I have decided to let go of the people I cannot change. The difficult ones who doesnt accually want to be...
