    It is also hard to know when the boundary is crossed and it seems even trying to be competitive may be confused with being obsessed.

    Obsession is common among codependents. This article describes the shame that underlies it. Whether codependents obsess because they made a “mistake” or they’re anxious about a love interest, underneath are feelings of inadequacy. They also worry about people and things they can’t control. Control and shame are big factors in obsession. The solution is to raise self-esteem, allow their feelings to flow, and to comfort themselves, which stop the obsession.

    It feels like I’ve been stopped half way as I’m reading…wheres the rest of this blog?
    This is the explanationI have been looking for for years.
    Will there be a follow up on this topic?
    Thankyou for telling it how it is.
    So many sites never do.
    You wouldnt happen to have any insight for raising self esteem.
