Responsible for one personís happiness & wellbeing

 

I have been codependent for most of my life. My focus was always on my mother, brother and father and how I could rescue & protect them all. There were so many constant crises that I believed that if I could just find a way to make them all happy that the crises would stop. Unfortunately, this didnít work instead I just became physically, emotionally and mentally exhausted.
 
In this program I have come to realize that I am only responsible for one personís happiness & wellbeing Ė mine. What a relief! What a gift! Today I am learning to find out & acknowledge my own needs and find healthy ways of meeting them. I have been blessed with lovely friendships in this fellowship and am slowly learning to make reach out calls when I need to. Having a sponsor has also helped me a huge amount.
