    Hi! My name is Dani Moretti, I am 19 years old and a sophomore in college. Recently, I started seeing and talking to a therapist. After coming to terms that for the last few years I was in a toxic relationship, I needed help on understanding “why me?”, “what was I doing wrong?”, or “did i deserve this?”. Talking to a therapist has helped, but reading your book “Codependent No More” has throughly spoken to me and changed my overall thought processes. Over my the last decade of my life, I have seen many families crash, many friends struggle from depression, or battle with toxic people and alcoholic parents. Me, as a sibling of four, being the oldest was hard, but what touched my heart was being able to help and wanting to help ever since I could talk. I don’t know what it is about me, but everyone I cross paths with tells me I have a deeper meaning to things than most do! I’m reaching out to you for two reasons. One, to tell you how amazing your book “Codependent No More” is and how it really changed me! My second reason for coming into contact with you is to ask you for advice you may be willing to give to me on being able to help me with a goal I have always had. I want to change the world, I want to help people and I m recently came up with an idea of emailing local schools around my community about letting me hold a support group, or even just an after school program where teenagers can come to if they feel upset, lonely, insecure or any type of way. It’s not only a group for negative emotions, but for positive ones too! Another idea of mine was to write my own book! I’ve had a history of events in my life that have made me to who I am today and would love to share it to the world and kids my age in the pureness of letting people know it’s okay to feel certain things and that no one is ever alone. My main goal is to help guide teens to understanding that they are worth something, and sometimes they just need need to hear the extra voice so they can see it themselves. Such as you spoke to me!
