Hi, I am 16 and I struggle with codependency in most of my relationships. I have been told I am codependent by my therapists and I believe I am. It is very hard for me because I have many issues that I need to deal with but instead I put my friends and whoever else's needs before mine just to please them. As a result, I don't end up dealing with whats going on with me and I get a pile of stuffed stuff. Its really hard for me because I am such a caring person and I don't want to hurt any of my friends by being assertive and I don't want to lose them. I just want to make them happy and if that means sacrificing my happiness, then I'll do it! I don't know how to break this destructive cycle and I would really like some suggestions. Thanks!
