Publisher's Summary

Are you the victim of a codependent relationship? Have you already desperately tried to find a way out, without success? Believe me, you are not alone. 

There are millions of people who constantly sacrifice their own needs in favor of someone else’s, take on other people’s responsibilities, and work to ensure everyone else’s happiness but their own. They push aside their own goals, dreams, and habits. In these relationships, manipulation, guilt, and resentment take the place of healthy, balanced affection.

Codependent partners are not necessarily together because they want to be, they are because they have to be, because they don’t know how to live otherwise. This audiobook will be your personal road map for self-healing and detachment.

The author covers:

  • Ways how codependency develops and what its characteristics are
  • Warning signals that your relationship is becoming codependent
  • Narcissism and codependency: the unholy union
  • The hidden connection between substance abuse and codependency
  • The path to detachment and the healing power of self-awareness
  • Building boundaries
  • Ways to stop attracting toxic people
  • Overcoming jealousy and anxiety in relationships
  • Cultivating mindfulness
  • The 21-day program to rewrite your story
  • Embracing healthy relationships

The relationships we are in can never be better than the relationships we have with ourselves. When you remove need, fear, obsession, and desperation, you open up the way for love and affection just for its own sake. It’s time to start saying “no" and set some boundaries.

If you are ready to create happy relationships and the life of peace and joy you deserve, then click the "buy now" button and get the audiobook!

excellent audiobook

Having recently come out of a relationship in which we were/are both codependent, I've been searching for an explanation as to why two people who love and adore each other can't be happy. I'm not searching for that explanation any more as the clarity this audiobook has given me is nothing short of spectacular. Thank you empowering me, giving me direction and focus, but mostly for giving me the chance to be happy.

nice audiobook

This audiobook was a game-changer for me. I have struggled with codependency all of my life and never knew it. You do not have to be an alcoholic or be with an alcoholic to benefit from this. My type of codependency is being a caretaker and people-pleaser, always putting myself last to the point of jeopardizing my own heart, mind and soul. This brought so much to light and helped me open my eyes to things I was either unaware of, ignoring, or denying all together. Melody is an incredible writer and her passion for helping people out of the pit of this illness is genuine and transparent.

this is a great audiobook

The only one I've found that doesn't approach codependency from a 12 step, involved with an addict point of view, that is covered but so much more. I finally feel like I have the tools to move in the right direction

Great audiobook

Excellent audiobook!!! Highly recommended!!! As a therapist myself, I found this audiobook accessible to all. It's an easy to listen and the step by step exercises are invaluable. It also sits nicely alongside other 12 Step Recovery Programmes without taking away the process of recovery.

Great companion this audiobook

I am so thankful; with the help of Codependency and consistently applying the information therein I do not have to live my life as a slave to a way of thinking and feeling that prohibits me from experiencing my healthiest self, capable and confidently living life to the fullest. This audiobook hugs my brain and heart with empowering messages and exercises that assist my process for how I may love and respect myself and as a result, righteously and healthfully love and respect the world around me.

Very helpful audiobook

I highly recommend Codependency I have complex PTSD. Over a period of years, I have listen many audiobooks, articles and taken classes regarding the various subjects that affect psychological/emotional healing, trauma, self-development, addiction, psychoanalysis, etc. I can’t say enough about this audiobook. It is very comprehensive and extremely resourceful. I am thankful for how Darlene Lancer references and relates topics throughout the audiobook making it easy to cross reference valuable information and the process for identifying, learning, healing, growing, developing and becoming the healthful person we hope to be.

Great audiobook

I learned how to change my behavior. I was able to put those changes into practice chapter by chapter, with the result that as I changed my behavior, my spouse's behavior changed for the better too! Darlene's explanations and guidance can be applied immediately to daily living, with transformations quickly following. The subject matter can be "shine-a-spotlight" tough to face, but the actual reading is clear, and flows easily. I felt like I was healing and growing stronger with every page read. There are other Codependency audiobooks out there, but my experience is that this one is the most comprehensive while also being the easiest to immediately put into practice.

highly recommended

This audiobook was the shove I needed to finally figure out what was wrong in my life. Darlene does not sugar coat her message, and at times it was difficult to listen the examples and explanations that cut so deeply to the heart of what I was experiencing. But if you can be brave (you can!) and honest with yourself, then this audiobook delivers the love medicine that enables the listening to set out on a better, more helpful and more skill path to reclaim their life. By learning about my symptoms of codependency,

Beautiful this audiobook

I'm a self-help junkie. I was raised by a single dysfunctional mother. I realize now- 38 yrs. later how I was raised has impacted me socially. I only thought I was useful if I was doing something for somebody else, and in the process, I lost my sense of self. I would have bought any addition of this audiobook really, I just happened on this edition. I think " series is effective on any subject that is difficult to grasp. Concepts of myself that need to change are difficult for me to see, but this audiobook makes it easier.

Good one!!

What an amazing healing is happening for me. It's very key, just having the insight that a core sense of shame was at the root of a broken way I was choosing how to live my life.I enjoyed the explanations it gave on the different types of codependents.
