I have run into many potholes on my path and surprisingly I am able to overcome life challenges and find new strength. I am a student of trial and error and learning from my mistakes has always provided growth opportunities. I believe I will always have a codependent piece in my character, one that I will never be able to truly leave behind. It is who I am. My journey to living for me has opened many other doors, doors which have me moving forward into new areas of my life that I would never have explored in the past. I love my life and the family and friends that surround me and the support I receive keeps me grounded.
I am excited to investigate the new areas my codependency has led me to, and am relieved to know I can make my mistakes and remain standing upright and proud. I will continue to move forward on my path, while standing still and safe with the love of my family and friends.
