The caller wanted to know why it was unhealthy to put everyone else in her life first.
She was raised that way, where her needs were not that important.
Are you happy in life? , I asked. Life could be better she said.
And your body, are you happy with that?
Honestly I could stand to lose 50 pounds, but I have no time for exercise.
The more we talked, the easier it was for her to see she was addicted to codependency.
The need to be liked, accepted, and the fear of rejection, abandonment.
Codependents live a life of unease, fearful to really be themselves.
Watch this video, to see what I mean.
It is by far the biggest addiction in the world!
First, step one, we have to see the truth, that this is ruling our lives.
That we fear being honest with everyone, because they might not then like us.
Step 2, is to get help, and lovingly begin to set aside time for our lives, our goals, our happiness.
For the past 25 years, we have helped thousands of people heal from codependency.
