I took the first step a year or so ago in admitting I was codependent. Today, I still struggle a lot with it. Lately, I've been trying to really think about myself, and my needs...but I find that when I do, I end up coming off cold or distant. It's hard for me to find the balance in between dedicating yourself to making someone else happy, which in my case is my boyfriend of 2 1/2 years, and feeling like you have control of your own happiness. I'm trying desperately to find the space in between. I want to be a rational, level headed person...but also want to be a loving girlfriend. I am struggling! Anyone relate, or have some words of wisdom?
