Publisher's Summary

You are not cursed, you are only codependent.

There are many people who don't know the difference between being in a healthy relationship and being in one that is codependent. You have simply gone from one unsatisfactory situation to the next without being able to control the situation. This audiobook delves into why people feel this inadequacy and depend upon relationships that are at best unsatisfactory, and at worst positively abusive. You don't need to be hit on a regular basis to be abused. However, when you let someone else dictate the course of your life, based upon their own unrealistic viewpoint, you may as well package your life into a box and give it away. Codependent people do that. When you listen through this audiobook, you will find solutions.

Here is a preview of what you'll find:

  • Assessment test - codependency
  • Understand: what is codependency?
  • Evaluating self
  • Recapturing your small ambitions
  • Codependency in the workplace
  • Setting yourself free
  • Volunteerism
  • Learning to say no
  • Caregiving versus caretaking
  • Boundaries
  • Recovery from codependence

Readers are advised to follow the exercises and to write down their progress in the following areas:   

  • Self-esteem 
  • Knowing the difference between caretaking and caregiving
  • Changing approach toward boundaries
  • Working toward freedom from the chains of codependency
  • Codependency in the workplace
  • Codependency when caring for the elderly
  • Codependency within a relationship

The information in this audiobook gives examples, and listeners can easily adapt the exercises to suit their individual circumstances, making it valuable for those looking for solutions to unsatisfactory relationships with others which can be classed as codependent.

If you are human, you should listen to this book.

If you are human, you should listen to this book. You could be on the receiving end of a codependent relationship, the abuser or even a friend or acquaintance of someone who suffers from a toxic relationship. I think everyone should have a role on how to put a stop on codependence. It's never healthy!

I wish I had known about this book before.

I’ve been lost in a fog of confusion, felt hopeless and in despair because of my abusing first husband who is highly manipulative. I used to think that he didn’t know any better and that he does not know what he is doing to me until I learned many years, before we divorced, that he knows exactly what he is doing. I wish I had known about this book before.
