    In Codependent No More, Melody Beattie introduced the world to the term codependency. In The New Codependency, she clears up misconceptions, identifies how codependent behavior has changed, and provides a new generation with a road map to wellness.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the audio version of Codependent No More and have listened to it to help me get through some times. The speaker on that book sounds compassionate and like she understands what she's reading.

    The speaker on this book sounds like she's reading a script and her inflections throw off the spirit behind the passage she's reading.

    There may be some helpful content in this update but it's impossible to tell with the way it's being read.

    This first installment in the simple truths series by Lucinda Drayton is an inspirational four-track meditation to help heal the pain of grief, divorce, and separation.

    Lucinda is the singer of the well known band Bliss, and she has created this wonderful recording after her own personal experience of loss. It comes straight from her heart and was inspired by a year of huge changes and challenges.

    On the first listen to this meditation I felt like a weight was taken off of me. It was so helpful to hear such a calm and caring voice talk about acceptance and moving on while creating images to help me visualize it. If you've suffered a loss or betrayal and can't seem to let go, you should give this a chance.

    When we lose a love, it seems as if the world has truly come to an end. We feel that we'll never recover, never fall in love again, and perhaps never again feel the joy life used to provide. And as distressing as these feelings are, they are actually quite useful, an integral part of the healing process we must experience in order to be whole and ready to love again.

    Overall

    This book came to me at just the right time. Still grieving from initiating a breakup with someone that I was in love with, I continued to struggle with the question of whether or not I made the right decision and why I was still so depressed when I was the one that walked away.

    The format is great as Dr. Gray first explains why you have the feelings you do, some exercises to help you forgive your ex and yourself and then things to do and to watch out for when you try again.

    For me, the exercises that brought me back through the relationship gave me the epiphany that I needed. It helped me remember why I had to breakup and gave me new perspective into why the relationship wasn't working.

    I highly recommend this book for anyone who is still struggling with the loss of a love.
