The road is long, the journey is rough and consists of many different directions, obstacles, and decisions. Being a lifelong codependent, I have always traveled my path with the belief that I can handle anything and everything on my own. This belief is shared by many codependents as it creates an appearance of strength and competence. The farther I travel on my walk, the more I have found others like me and this comes with the enlightenment that I do not have to be alone. Others are willing to help carry my burdens and I am able to help with theirs. In gathering friends and family along the way, the journey has become an adventure. The strong and capable me becomes the sharing, loving, alive, and happy inner self that has waited for the chance to spring forth. My journey is filled with faith, sunlight and happiness, an excitement greets each new day. Codependency will no longer overshadow my world and leave me crouched in a corner, afraid to face the world.
I have taken a step back to view the forest, instead of focusing on the trees.
