How do you get over abandonment?

I have to say I am so grateful to have met these wonderful women from my Friday night group. Although I know I am a broken record kvetching about how I feel stuck, these compassionate women listen and offer gentle advice. One of my friends reminded me that the core of all of these issues – – codependence, love addiction, any kind of addiction really – – is fear of abandonment, and it sounds like that is what I am struggling to overcome. She acknowledged it was scary, and her advice was to go to adult child meetings and do some serious reading in John Bradshaw and some related authors. Amazing that I feel so much more optimistic today than yesterday. Just knowing I have a group of people to lean on, makes me feel so grateful and blessed and truly supported.
