“In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do
is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing,
and the worst thing you can do is nothing.” ~Theodore Roosevelt
Where does it come from?
Have you ever wondered how you came to be codependent?
Research says you became codependent during your formative years, before the age of 7.
It's programmed into your brain; molded by the actions and words of your mother, father, siblings, grandparents, teachers, and anyone else you had consistent contact with.
That programming determines your beliefs; what you think or don't think of yourselves and of the world around you. Your beliefs in turn choreograph your behavior and actions.
Codependency isn’t just related to alcoholism. You can be codependent when subjected to any dysfunctional life situation with addiction, mental illness, trauma ...
Through no fault of your own, you become isolated. You didn't learn how to make friends. In social settings others comment that you are shy, quiet, and well behaved.
You see your life as "normal" because you have never seen how other families interact.
Growing Up Codependent
Codependency is a villain that has robbed you of childhood experiences, friends, happy moments, goals and dreams.
You were mature beyond your years because of the adult circumstances you dealt with on a day to day, minute by minute basis. You may painfully remember you ...
Had low self-esteem.
Carried the blame for other peoples problems.
Had an excessive need to please others.
Had difficulty making decisions.
Spent so much time taking care of other people, you had no time left to LIVE life.
Unable to express your feelings.
Becoming a do-it-yourself-er, unable to ask for help in any situation.
Never feeling like you measure up, no matter how hard you try.
Becoming a perfectionist.
Afraid you aren't being a good roll model for your children.
The Good News Is ...
You CAN change the outcome of your life and the lives of your children. STARTING TODAY! You can create a new normal. STARTING TODAY!
It all starts with an IDEA and a DECISION.
The Universe has given you a gift. A gift of life. And you have in you everything you need to succeed in whatever you decide to do with that life. But the thing is, you have to ...
Know how to tap into that gift to be able to use it.
Have the right tools to make it happen.
Change your mindset from life is happening "to" you to life is happening "through" you.
Have the support and resources so you don't fall back into old patterns of being.
Because I have been where you are, and I know how hard it is to meet the villain of codependency head on, I have made it my mission to help other codependent woman break the cycle of codependency with themselves. To leave a true legacy for their children and their children to come. It all starts with YOU.
I have set aside some time in the next few days to speak to you personally in what I call a BEYOND Discovery Session. We'll take a look at your old normal and then do something that you may not have done is a while, we'll do a little dreaming. What would you new normal look like? Then we'll test it to see if it is worthy of you, you time, talents and resources.
I invite you to click the button below to get on my calendar. I hope to talk to you soon.
