I read this with tears in my eyes. I'm the codependent one. I've seen glimpses of my own self-worth and confidence and had those moments of genuine, healthy, everything-I've-been-looking-for connection... only to lose it all when the codependence creeps back in.

Overcoming codependency IS hard. Damn hard. I'm still not sure how to do it. But I want this love. More than anything. A little too much, it would seem, haha.

Thank you for sharing your experience and showing me that it IS possible to overcome this and find that I'm looking for. :)
