Entering CoDA has made me aware”

After being in an eight year long relationship, where we broke up and returned four times, it came to an end. From the first breakup I knew I couldn't live without him, I just remembered the good. We tried it three more times, we were even going to get married, but again my deepest fear came back. I no longer trusted him. I couldn't look him in the eye anymore. However, when I was alone, I would forget that and I would want to return to this pointless relationship. Entering CoDA has made me aware of what I need vs what my mind thinks it needs.

Después de estar en una relación de 8 años, donde 4 veces terminamos y volvimos, llegó a su fin. Desde la primera vez que acabó supe que no podría vivir sin él, solo recordaba lo bueno, lo intentamos tres veces más, hasta íbamos a casarnos, pero de nuevo mi más profundo temor volvía, ya no confiaba en él, sin embargo cuando estoy sola, lo recuerdo y quisiera volver a esta relación sin sentido. Entrar a CODA, me ha dado conciencia de lo que necesito vs lo que mi mente cree necesitar. Ya no podría verlo a los ojos igual
