MY STORY

Memories of my family life, before the age of 7 were that my father was my hero; my guardian; my world. My mother was caring but distant.

My sisters, who are 6 and 8 years older than I, have different perceptions of our family dynamic. I was 30+ years old before I was told, by my sister, that our father was an alcoholic. For a long time I thought she was lying. 

As I look back on my adolescent years, I now see I was very lonely. I was not allowed to have friends. I changed schools every two years due to moving. I adapted myself to my surroundings and made this my normal. 

My father passed away when I was in my late teens. Now I sought other males to become my hero, my guardian, my world. I put my whole self into being who or what they wanted me to be. One disaster after another!

I was 26 before I married. He came from an alcoholic family too and became one himself. We were married for 22 years and we had two wonderful sons. But once the children were out of the house I felt empty and didn't know what to do with myself. We divorced.

Of course I got into other relationships that were doomed, but I was not sure why until I became aware of what codependency was and the impact it had on my whole life, all the way back to my childhood. 

Since that time, I have gone on to study codependency. I wanted to be able to help other women who are struggling with its effects to figure out who they are beyond codependent. The coaching curriculum I have been certified in by the Life Mastery Institute is the same curriculum I used those many years ago to find myself, to figure out who I am and what I want from life.

I have moved BEYOND codependency. And I know you can too.
