Co-NNections Recovery Stories

When I First Realized That I Was Codependent – March 18, 2021

So it starts out when I first realized that I was actually codependent, that it really hit me. I finally figured out WHY I was never comfortable just being alone in my own skin. I always had/have to be with someone to be happy. After a while, I started getting obsessed with it. And worried that I’ll always be alone. That’s when I realized there was something wrong. So I reached out for help. Someone mentioned “CoDA” meetings. And I thought why not, I’ll give it a shot. So here I am. Optimistic, excited yet definitely nervous but I’m always willing to try new things. Thanks, CoDA, for giving me the hope that I need to be ok with just me.
