Have you lost sight of who you are as an individual?
If you find yourself questioning the healthiness of your relationships and struggle to stand up for what you want, you’re not alone.
Codependent behaviors are some of the most difficult relationship patterns to identify, yet it’s rarely discussed and often considered another form of “clinginess.”
This definition ignores the feelings of guilt and shame that arise from the best of intentions — it does nothing to recognize that even the best intentions can hurt.
As you put yourself on the line for the people you love, it can be difficult to tell when the boundaries between you and them have blurred to the point of toxicity.
After all, you’re motivated by wanting the best for others, even if it means you have to put aside your own values and opinions to do so.
However, when you come to rely on outside factors for validation and a sense of identity, these “do good” habits can do more harm than good.
You may suddenly feel obligated to stay in a constricting relationship that turns you into a victim and limits your capacity for intimacy. It can feel as though you have no one to turn to because everybody relies on you.
That doesn’t mean your life has to stay that way.
Codependency may be running your life, but you are the one in the driver’s seat. In fact, you’ve already taken the first step by realizing you need to change the path you’re on.
Don Barlow knows firsthand the transformational effects of recovering from codependency and has compiled the knowledge he gained over the years so others can experience the same freedom.
In Your Codependency Recovery Blueprint, here is just a fraction of what you will discover:
●What codependency is and isn’t, as well as its historical background
●Exercises and practices to help break the pattern of enabling others while learning to assert yourself
●How childhood experiences contribute to dysfunctional relationships and determine the behaviors that follow you into adulthood
●The 5 patterns of codependent behavior, and how identifying them will help you understand the signs and symptoms manifesting in your life
●Techniques and advice on getting over your need for control, learning to accept people for who they are
●Identifying the 3 stages of codependency progression: how to begin the recovery process by reclaiming your sense of identity and self-worth
●Essential self-care practices that promote self-respect and compassion, even in difficult situations
And much more.
It isn’t selfish to put yourself first — it’s time to prioritize your own life and happiness and stop ignoring your personal needs.
Listen to your instincts and take this first step on your journey to finding independence and fulfilment.
