I read a book about co-dependency and the whole book described me to a tee. At first I was relieved that it just wasn't me. But then reality hit and I don't know how to change it. I have been to counseling but never felt they really worked the issue with me. So I am still struggling on how to overcome this. How I felt started wtih how my mom felt then that carried over to how my husband felt and mom felt. My whole life is based on how other people feel because I have never felt my own emotions. Now 40 years later and divorced I'm lost in how to find out who I am and how I feel. It has been a hard journey with little results. Without counseling how do you begin to even start unraveling the depths of co-dependency on your own?
