Hello, I was raised in a turbulent home which have affected my adult relationships. My wife had left me a year ago, and this past year, I leaned heavily on my best friend of 2 years and this past summer I started developing feelings for. I expressed my feelings 2 weeks ago prior to her move out of state, and she made it clear she did not reciprocate my feelings, and asked for space. I have been spiraling ever since.
Through different channels I discovered Codependents Anonymous which led me to find this group. I realize that I don't put value in my own self, I overreach and help others and give more than I should, hoping for some type of reciprocation. I've gone through my life feelings invisible and wanting to be seen. I'm an attention seeker. I realized I needed help to learn to love myself badly.
I'm hoping to find tools to improve myself and to move past my qualifier. I am looking for a sponsor. Thank you for reading.
