Life never is what you expect. I was married 23 years to a man that was verbally and emotionally abusive. I gather my will and leave to forge a new path to only find myself seeking relationships that followed the same routine.
I ended a three year relationship not so long ago with a horribly narcissistic man that I just can’t break free from. I feel alone. I tried dating again and just found that really I am not healthy enough to proceed in a positive direction.
I have just realized that I have spent my entire life being codependent and it’s misery to say the least. I can’t continue down this path however I have no idea where to even start. I am reading co dependent no more, found a co dependence 12 step program and will go to my first meeting on Thursday. I just feel so lost and worthless that I let the people in my life control my happiness and peace. I have pulled away from any friends that I had and my family is a huge contributor to my situation. I am not sure what to do.
Hi everyone! Today has been good so far. So its been an un-Monday Monday :) Traveling along on my sobriety journey. I'm feeling pretty positive today and am grateful for another day sober. I'm trying to work through my negative thoughts and change that thinking. I'm usually pretty into the holidays, but this year I've been struggling with depression. So I'm trying to break out of that slump....
