5 thoughts on “Perfectionism and Codependency: Learn to Love Your Imperfect Self

    Great article. But I find myself who is not a codependent person, showing traits of codependency as i am married to a “recovering” codependent person by trying to get things done around the house to meet her expectations. And never attaining them. It puts me in a situation that was an old habit with me that I struggled to remove from myself, now I find that I am turning to those habits. How does one speak to a codependent about that? I don’t want to regress myself…

    I stumbled upon this site and was so grateful. I have been going to counseling for a while. I didn’t understand why I felt the way I did. I stumbled upon you’re site one evening and am so happy I did. I am defiantly a codependent person. Knowing what is going on with me is how I can fix it. I have taken screenshots of the things you’ve posted and read them daily to keep me on the right path. Thanks for putting all of this out there. I recently ordered your book. You have so much knowledge and just want to say thanks for sharing it.
