Getting to Know Myself

I am Esraa and I am Codependent.

Before coming to CoDA Fellowship, I was suffering from a lack of management of my love life, and I used to get into a lot of toxic relationships. I didn't know why until I joined CoDA. While I was using the recovery tools, I discovered many of my personal flaws, and how they relate to growing up in a troubled family.

I discovered the compulsive reasons that pushed me to enter into unhealthy relationships, and I learned to deal with them This happened after using recovery tools to work the Steps and establish a healthy relationship with a sponsor who listens, appreciates feelings, and shares his experience in this program. I began to get to know myself and her needs by working the program.

I had almost two years of recovery when a radical change occurred in my life. And, after being at the bottom of despair, I can say that I was revived again to a decent life of getting to know myself and others from a different and healthier perspective.
