Codependency


Do you resent what you present?

Do you …


  • insure other’s happiness as a way of insuring your own?


  • find yourself needing to “fix” others’ problems?


  • often find yourself in the middle of “the drama?"


  • have difficulty maintaining “good” relationships? 


  • find others taking advantage of your good nature?


  • have feelings of resentment with others for not returning your generosity?


  • at the end of the day, feel like you have little to no value?


If your answer is “Yes” to any of the above questions, this indicates experiences of codependency. I prefer to call it an experience, like a state of mind, rather than a label. 

Experiences of codependency can be eliminated by restructuring your boundaries in your relationships while encouraging your feelings of self-worth. This is a committed process of deconstruction of behaviors related to your ideas of being “good.” It involves a detailed review of your family roles and rules, your cultural ideas about success and your unique spiritual views concerning the differences between good and bad.

At the end of the day, you will be able to rest your head on your pillow at night having value in YOU.
