Publisher's Summary

If you have a codependent personality and are sick and tired of being in one sided relationships, that are emotionally destructive and you keep falling back into the same old habitats then keep reading. 

Are you sick and tired of not being to break the patterns of being codependent?

Have you tried endless other solutions? But nothing seems to stick for more than a few weeks or months. 

Do you finally want to say goodbye to not having mutually satisfying relationships and discover something which works for you?  

If so, then you’ve come to the right place.

You see, having a healthy relationship doesn’t have to be difficult.

Even if you have researched every method on changing your behaviors, or don’t fully understand what exactly you should be doing, it takes action in order to be able to effectively unlearn these traits. it’s easier than you think. No two people are the same so it needs to be understood that a certain treatment that works for one person may not work for you.

Multiple studies have determined that the one of the root causes is usually from traumas & unhealthy behaviors that surrounded us as we were growing up.  

As stated in the Journal of Aggression, Maltreatment & Trauma: “These investigations have led to the realization that survivors of childhood emotional maltreatment suffer from myriad psychological and social difficulties. These difficulties influence the quality and nature of intimate relationships formed by emotional abuse survivors.”

Studies like this confirm that discovering what exactly led you to this path of codependency is vital in order to start the recovery process. 

Here’s just a tiny fraction of what you’ll discover:

  • How to delve into your past and find the keys that will unlock your current behaviors
  • How to heal from past experiences. The self care tips you see Online are great but discover why healing from a deeper level is the only way to break the cycle!
  • Identify the patterns of behavior and how to break these. 
  • How to put yourself first and understanding your emotions
  • Success stories from real women
  • Should I start saying 'No' more often? Will I ever stop worrying about things that are out of my control?
  • Much, much more!

Take a second to imagine how you’ll feel once you break these patterns, if you have children (now, or maybe in the future), how you changing your ways can be a huge benefit in their lives also!

So even if you’re tired of the endless cycle you have found yourself in or have hit an all-time low and have realized this needs to STOP now. 

You can change your approach and your feelings towards changing in order to stop being codependent. All it takes is the first initial baby steps, dedication and the belief that you are going to make a change!

Start that change today.

I have escaped so can you

I was stuck and thought there was no way out, other people in a similar situation need to help themselves and get the help they need.

Great identifying the problem, weak on solutions.

This book is great at identifying but doesn't provide many solutions other than saying that you need to stop. This needs a way to integrate the solutions with a workbook or something.

A lot of repeat and errors

The narrator left some errors in there and the author and/or the narrator repeat a part of a sentence multiple times. The info was also repeated throughout the book. I had this issue on another book with a similar topic (but different author), so I hope I'm not blaming the collaborators if it's Audible's fault! The info available was good, but I could do without repeating it a number of times to fill a book.

Very basic information

The audio is not long (just over 3 hours) and the first 20-25 minutes are taken up with disclaimers that the author is neither a therapist nor a professional and informing the listener of the contents of the book. Most of this intro was repetitive and un-necessary in my opinion. The content is very basic but might suit someone who is completely new to codependency and doesn't want to get overwhelmed. Sadly there was nothing new in it for me and the content at times seemed far too simplistic. Believe me recovery from codependency is a lot more complicated than the author would have you believe. One positive was the narration which certainly wasn't the worst although there is a lot of sentence repetition and some mispronunciation of words. If you are looking for a more comprehensive look at codependency, I'd recommend anything by Pia Mellody or Darlene Lancer over this book.
