Publisher's Summary

Do you have difficulty maintaining healthy relationships? Do you either become too clingy or shut down emotionally, despite an honest desire to establish loving, healthy connections with people? Often, these issues are a sign of codependency — an emotional state in which you generate love and affection from fears of abandonment or rejection, perhaps due to childhood neglect.

Besides derailing your ability to create healthy relationships, another risk associated with codependency is that you may find yourself in a situation where someone significant to you gains too much control. With that control and the wrong intentions, that person may plant seeds of uncertainty in your mind, causing you to question your own memory, recognition, or rational soundness. This manipulation technique, known as “gaslighting”, involves abusers who utilize refusal, confusion, inconsistency, and deceit in an effort to destabilize their victim or victims and delegitimize their convictions.

If either or both of these situations apply to you, keep listening....

Codependency is difficult to overcome; in its grip, your own ego holds you hostage and keeps you from behaving with authenticity and achieving self-actualization. The relationships forged under its influence can be problematic, at best. The first book in this bundle equips you with a step-by-step approach to recover from the state of co-dependency.

Gaslighting, as a type of psychological abuse, gradually consumes your capacity to make decisions. Basically, gaslighters redirect the blame for their own negative words and deeds onto you, causing you to question yourself and sometimes even your own sanity. Regularly embraced by psychopaths, sociopaths, and narcissists, gaslighting gradually destroys your self-esteem until you become a shell of your previous self. The second book is a solid resource to help you recognize, end, and recover from gaslighting.

Below are some of the most important topics, skills, and emotional recovery tools covered in these books: 

Codependency:

  • Signs that denote codependency
  • Forming proper connections and letting go of pent-up resentment
  • Loving yourself and giving your needs top priority
  • Taking steps towards recovery
  • Building strong relationships with the right amount of autonomy and intimacy

Gaslighting:

  • Recognizing gaslighting as manipulation
  • Understanding the ins and outs of gaslighting
  • Comprehending the gaslighting cycle
  • Tools used by gaslighters
  • Gaslighting in relationships
  • Red flags indicators that you may be a victim of gaslighting
  • Ending the gaslighting cycle

Even if you’re not sure whether you have codependent tendencies or are a victim of gaslighting, these books may be for you.

Great audio book on Codependency in Relationships

This audio book is such a great help, you will love it! The audio book clearly explains the differences between a mindful functional relationship that is never forced or judgmental to the kind of relationships most of us are in that are full of jealousy, and other damaging emotions that destroy relationships over time. Definitely worth a listen!
