Welcome to HealingWell. May I suggest you order the book "Codependent No More", by Melody Beattie. It comes highly recommended by many therapists. I have read it and was surprised to find I have some of these traits .........it is an excellent self help book.
I am so glad you found us. Keep on talking to us.
I wish you peace,

Hugs to you and I am so sorry you had a horrible day at work. I know what it is like to have disagreements with friends and how much we want to blame ourselves yet at the same time we feel hurt and upset by the whole situation. I am glad this is someone that you will eventually be able to patch things up with and not someone that will hold a grudge but any confrontation is painful so bless you.
Whoooooooo hoooooooo, your book, "Codependent No More" arrived. That is awesome and try to read it slowly and use it as a great resource to return to whenever you start to feel the need for a refresher.
Keep on talking with us and remember one day at a time.
