I must say, I read your blog and I felt like I was reading my life story about the entire codependency thing. Along with that, I KNOW for sure there are soooo many past experiences that I bottled up and bottled up. I never fully experienced them and tried to pretend like they didnt happen, almost like a "dream". Sound familiar? Well, I let all of those out yesterday to my girlfriend and balled like a little baby. Most of them are still a process of letting out, but for the first time in a really long time, I feel like myself. By "myself", I mean I feel like I finally know who I am and have an identity. I believe this is a HUGE step in overcoming this DP. I encourage people to really check out FEARLESS's blog. It has truly helped me understand a lot about myself. His words led me to look inside myself and come to the realizations, not by me reading the words did I automatically come to the realizations though. People, you need to read this with an open mind and apply it to yourself. You will learn a lot more about yourself than you realize which is the only way you will get over DP. Most people in DP have lost a big chunk of who they are. Also, to my knowledge, I thought I had a PERFECT childhood and adolescence. I now know, there were a lot of things that corrupted my thinking. I believe I'm on the way to recovery. Although, i know i have a long way to go .Thanks FEARLESS.
