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.

  • So its been 4 weeks. 4 weeks today in fact.Some days I think Ive got this....other days I think I just have no future. Im nearly 50 and this is my 4th Divorce. I just keep repeating the same old mistakes. How can I stop this cycle?Most days I cry all day. For the silliest reason, in shops, in banks just sitting on the sofa....today I started crying in the library and the only thing I had to dry...
  • Whenever my wife has some issue, and it's usually work which has become toxic, I feel frozen and I can't enjoy myself and I'm always on edge feeling helpless and wanting to fix it/make it go away. Old stuff for sure but such a sickening feeling like I'm going to be blamed for not being supportive enough. That's my mom all over again and it's hard to separate those old feelings with today's...
  • I almost dont recognize myself and am ashamed that I have let myself become so co-dependent on someone else and my reliance on them for my happiness is not healthy. It is harmful to myself and has ruined my self- esteem and has now made my boyfriend begin to resent me as well. I am struggling with codependency and anxiety.Ever since I was little I would seek others approval or validation to feel...

    I was in what I thought was the best relationship of my life. However, I didn't realize that what I interpreted to be "love" was more codependent issues and pushed my partner to a breaking point. Just an example: If I texted him good morning to be sweet and he didn't reply until the afternoon - I would get upset and start an unnecessary fight. I know I have unrealistic expectations that I am his...

    This is my first post and first online group... Not really sure what to expect but let's try hey.I have recently broke up with my partner that started AA only 5 months ago and at the time I couldn't see why no matter what we tried it wouldn't work. Now I can see the alcoholism was a big contributer and also my co dependency. Firstly I need to say, I told hope in my heart that with both of us...
  • Hi y'all. I just joined, looking forward to hearing your stories and personal solutions/what has helped you. I am not looking for advice however, I get enough of that from my husband :) I have been struggling with codependency forever, and it has kept me from understanding myself at all. Everything I have done is flipped around, done outside-in, versus from inside out. I act based on what I...
  • I've realized that I have some codependent tendencies. Growing up I struggled to please my parents and gain their approval, which I think has probably lead to where I am now. In college I was in a relationship for two years- I was totally in love but also completely codependent. That ended about 10 months ago and I went through a period of time where it was the worst I've ever felt in my entire...

    A very touching movie

    I recently watched the film 'The forest for the trees', a story about a newbie schoolteacher who didn't have a clue about herself, and spins out of control in her new job. She becomes obsessed about a neighbor and tries disastrosuly to win her affection, while her job is a nightmare and feels she can't trust the one sympathetic colleague who might understand her. I found it really touching to see...

    Hi Group-I am new to this group, but I'm hoping that by reading things other folks post and by posting myself I can gain some insights. I never realized I was so unhappy and anxious, I knew something was wrong but I did not realize the issues were with myself. My wife got so mad at me one day and pretty much shoved the book 'Codependent No Nore' at me. Once I got over myself and started...
  • Hello,I just found this site. I'm still young(18) and don't know much about this but from what I can gather I believe I have a codependency problem. Yes.. Yes... I know most young adults tend to be somewhat codependent. But I really feel that it's more of a problem then just normal "teen stuff". When I was younger I never had a relationship with my mother. She was a drug addict, very...

    Hello all. I have finally decided to seek help for the codependency. I believe I have been this way my whole life. I had a stroke 4 years ago and it rocked my world. I was diagnosed with MS 2 years ago so dealing with ms and being a codie makes for a pretty sad existence. I have no meeting in my area and have just started the first step on my own. It is very difficult to be so honest with...

    I have been a member of this group for a while but havent posted for a while.I am codependant.I have struggled all my life with relationships. As soon as I get involved with someone I cannot cope - it consumes me. I have been working on myself and been better but I have come to realise after recently leaving my abusive (narcissistic) husband that part of the problem is me. I allow this to happen...
  • Hi everyone! My name is Jodie and I have recently discovered that I have a Codependency problem. I have been through multiple traumatic events in my life that I feel have contributed to my issue, but at my core I feel that this is really a problem in my life. I have noticed that I am constantly depending on my relationships to feel good about myself. My father was never a big part of my life and...

    help support needed.

    I need support. That it is ok to stay away from addicts not In recovery!! I tend to have empathy but find myself not setting boundaries with unhealthy people. I then make plans with them and just have coffee but when done I am so exhausted as they talk in circles and are never direct but in decisive on every thing they speak. So please help with support and saying I can "say no" to meeting them....
  • Finding people you can relate too is a wonderful feeling. You don't feel so alone, I am too codependent i have been all my life. I've always had to be in a relationship to feel complete, to feel loved, and liked. It's always been like that, But i want to change. i want to be INDEPENDENT. Yes, i said it. i know for most of us codependent people INDEPENDENT isn't in our vocaburlary. It's time for...
