Publisher's Summary

If your life has been affected by addiction (yours or someone else's), abuse, trauma or toxic shaming, you may also be struggling with another invisible problem - codependency. Without your even being aware of the connection to the above issues, it has created additional life-long challenges such as endless guilt, anxiety, perfectionism, need to control, depression, a history of dysfunctional relationships and much more. 

This easy-to-understand, interactive book will reveal how codependency has sobotaged you, the lies it created in your beliefs and the truths that expose them. Also included is a Guide to Recovery using simple acts of mindfulness to overcome harmful habits in your thinking, actions and choices that are keeping you from having peace. Once you understand you are not crazy, just coping with the deep-seated effects of codependency, you will be free to create the life you were always meant to have.

Too much fluff, not enough practical solutions.

This is a typical self-help book, though, it is many hours of fluff and the authors own baggage of what they went through. The author paints codependency in a very black and white manner, and makes it seem like you had to have gone through major physical abuse to experience the symptoms of a codependency. They more or less spend most of the book talking about their personal experience, symptoms, beliefs, etc. The book is advertised as a practical guide and claims to give you knowledge needed to overcome codependency, but is mostly just the authors own personal accounts, examples, stories, and not a lot of practical solutions, while being condescending enough to warn the reader that being lazy is just an excuse, its crazy to claim to really understand the mental mechanisms behind this disorder. On the one hand the author states that there is a powerlessness behind these mental disorders, such that we don't CHOOSE to be codependent, or depressed. or anxious, but the author explicitly wants you to believe that you can 'overpower' these mechanisms with your free will, it's as crazy as telling an addict "hey, if you just TRY a bit harder, you can kick this addiction!" Not very helpful. We want to develop insight, not be told that we are codependent because we are just lazy and choose to be. Also, the narration is absolutely horrid.

Courageous and Harsh

I appreciated the sincere recollections of the book, but the narrator's voice was not suitable because it was harsh. I felt as if the author was still going through so much pain and had not gone through her storm completely. I was reminded that you cannot take others where you, yourself have not gone. I encourage the author to stay with her process and write another book when she has completed her journey and is able to reflect. We tend to share too early before we have distilled the experience.

Very helpful. Great listen.

Very helpful in my personal growth. Narrator was great! Really helped me on my journey of overcoming codependency. Religious section is the last section of the book which is helpful for those who are not.

Great insight

This book was the most helpful and honest book I’ve found. Hit all points and gave me a great feeling of empowerment as well as peace knowing that I’m not crazy after all as well as solids knowing I’m not alone.

This book is a great!

This book is a self help book that goes into detail about Codependency and Trauma. If you need a fresh take on how to define Codependency in your relationships this is a great tool.

Extremely Inspirational !

This book has helped me in so many ways and areas in my life. It has helped me look back to my past childhood and earlier life experiences to answer honest questions about myself and understand what codependency really is and how it has affected my life. I now use the tools and re-listen to this book over and over. I encourage anyone struggling with anything to read this book!

Helpful

Just a really good book for Codependent people. I listened as I did other things. Now I'm going to listen again to work the exercises, so I can truly begin to change my habits and thinking.
