How to stop being codependent
I am currently going through a divorce which I initated. It has been the best decision of my life. Through this process I have learned about how I also contributed to the failure of my marriage. I have learned that I am extremely codependent and I don't want to be this way anymore. However, I cannot seem to let go of the negative self talk and the extreme neediness that I feel. How can I improve this? I don't need others to beat me up because I do it enough myself.
