Many of you have asked for an episode dealing with codependency, and today is the day! Listen to the end to find out how to enter to win this month's giveaway of a free on demand class with me! Codependency can rule your life with the belief that you just can't live without someone-their approval, their attention, their direction. I have found that most people have struggled with codependency at some point in their lives, and recovery is possible. You may be codependent if: you attend to everyone else's needs before your own; you find yourself wondering what it is that you LIKE TO DO with your downtime, should you ever have any; you get invited to something and genuinely don't know if you WANT to go, or if you just want to please the person who invited you by going; you find yourself locked in relationships that do a lot for the other person while either doing nothing OR actually harming you; you have an "unhealthy attachment" to a controlling or abusive person (unhealthy here means putting their needs before your own). Tune into today's episode for some psychological tips about how to deal with this, as well as a mini-Transformational Healing.™ Enter to win the season's giveaway for ONE FREE COURSE by signing up for my newsletter hereand scroll to the bottom of the page when you get there!
