Explains what co-dependency so you can identify the issue.... explains the basics of self-care. A great read for overcoming co-dependency or for understanding those friends, family, co-workers who are caught up in it.
"Codependent" is more than just a word joked about in sit-coms. It is for real. But it is so difficult for the person who is codependent to realize it. They don't intend to control others and everything around them - that is just their comfort zone and how they deal with life. But they need to learn how to love themselves and to care for themselves. The rest of the world will appreciate it and they will live longer and love more fully. A good read.
this whole topic is so important for so many of us women today! especially for the baby boomer generation who were trapped in two worlds, the old traditional one of our stay at home mothers and the new one where women do it all!
