In Codependent No More, Melody Beattie introduced the world to the term codependency. Now a modern classic, this book established Beattie as a pioneer in self-help literature and endeared her to millions of readers who longed for healthier relationships. Twenty-five years later concepts such as self-care and setting boundaries have become entrenched in mainstream culture. Now Beattie has written a followup volume, The New Codependency, which clears up misconceptions about codependency, identifies how codependent behavior has changed, and provides a new generation with a road map to wellness. The question remains: What is and what is not codependency? Beattie here reminds us that much of codependency is normal behavior. It's about crossing lines. There are times we do too much, care too much, feel too little, or overly engage. Feeling resentment after giving is not the same as heartfelt generosity. Narcissism and self-love, enabling and nurturing, and controlling and setting boundaries are not interchangeable terms. In The New Codependency, Beattie explores these differences, effectively invoking her own inspiring story and those of others, to empower us to step out of the victim role forever. Codependency, she shows, is not an illness but rather a series of behaviors that once broken down and analyzed can be successfully combated. Each section offers an overview of and a series of activities pertaining to a particular behavior -- caretaking, controlling, manipulation, denial, repression, etc. -- enabling us to personalize our own step-bystep guide to wellness. These sections, in conjunction with a series of tests allowing us to assess the level of our codependent behavior, demonstrate that while it may not seem possible now, we have the power to take care of ourselves, no matter what we are experiencing. Punctuated with Beattie's renowned candor and intuitive wisdom, The New Codependency is an owner's manual to learning to be who we are and gives us the tools necessary to reclaim our lives by renouncing unhealthy practices.

Are you having trouble fostering healthy relationships? Are you stressed, feeling drained and exhausted from giving too much in your relationships? Do you know who you are? What you need? What you like? Or do you feel that you need to be validated and approved by a partner (or any other person) to feel good about yourself? If your life has been overshadowed by an addiction, trauma or toxic shame, you are probably fighting with an invisible enemy; an enemy that is particularly difficult to vanquish: codependency. Codependency is notoriously difficult to combat because there is no precise definition of the disorder. The signs and symptoms also differ for everyone. It is often mistaken for narcissism or other personality disorders that do not reflect the true situation. Experts say that it is a pattern of behavior in which a person finds themselves dependent on someone else's approval for their self-esteem and identity. People who suffer from this disorder tend to mask what they really feel. At other times, they are not even aware of what they are doing. This only serves to cloud the overall picture by delaying positive interventions, which, sometimes will never come. I RECOMMEND THAT YOU READ THIS BOOK IF: - You are not aware of how you truly feel. - You have difficulty identifying your feelings. - You have difficulty expressing your feelings. - You tend to minimize, modify or even deny the reality of what you feel. - You tend to worry and/or fear how others may respond to how you feel. - You give power over your feelings to others. Does this sound familiar to you? DOES YOUR PARTNER OFTEN: - Focus his or her attention on pleasing you. - Focus his or her attention on protecting you, even when it is not necessary. - Focus his or her attention on solving your problems. - Focus his or her attention on relieving your pain. - Focus his or her attention on manipulating you (forcing you to do things his or her way). There are numerous other situations that are listed in this book. Knowing the right information allows you to limit any damage by avoiding unnecessary suffering. Everyone seems to know a couple relationship in which one partner seems to be more involved than the other and tries to get their love and care by satisfying their needs. They try to control their partner's behavior through such subtle manipulation techniques, and the partner will often not even notice. They make endless and complicated dances around problems, but what they never do is establish a sincere and healthy connection. WHAT YOU NEED NOW: Listen to those who understand this problem and have experienced the dynamics just listed. Inquire: read, watch videos and access people who have the skills to alleviate the destructive damage that unstable parents can create. This manual offers support not only to those who are codependent, but also gives useful advice to partners, family and friends on how to reduce the discomfort and suffering of their loved one, with sections written especially for them. This complete approach makes this manual a milestone of its kind. Act now before it's too late If a codependent denies his destructive behavior, he can pass it on to his children. If the child does not realise the behavioural model of the parents, and its negative impact, it will generate the same patterns as an adult. An endless cycle can be established. Commit to breaking this cycle and regain control of your life.Scroll up and click Buy Now botton at the top of this page

Do you want to a recovery guide for your toxic relationship? Do you want to learn how to be no more codependent and healing yourself with a positive mindset.? If yes, then keep reading... There is no single agreed-upon definition for "codependent," so it's frequently misused or misunderstood. It doesn't refer to simply neediness or attachment issues. Codependency occurs in relationships where one person gives up power to their partner. However, that partner isn't willing or able to fulfill the other's emotional needs in return, so the relationship is off-balance. Very often, the person who is given power is an addict, an alcoholic, or abuser. They might be mentally ill and not taking steps to get treatment. However, negative personality traits such as selfishness, immaturity, and irresponsibility can also be present in codependent relationships without addiction or mental illness. In codependent relationships, the person surrendering power enables destructive behavior for the sake of preserving the relationship. If someone has a pattern of codependency, they will continuously choose partners who can't fulfill their needs and drain all their emotional energy. On the other side, a narcissist, addict, abuser, chronically selfish person, or a person who refuses to get help for a mental illness, will seek out partners eager to please and make excuses for them. This book covers the following topics: -What is codependency? -Are you codependent? -Are you in a codependent relationship? -How to avoid codependent relationships -Ending a codependent relationship -Moving on from a codependent relationship It's very hard to find out who is going to suffer from co-dependency because many factors are responsible for this disorder. However, after doing some research over a few years, doctors have found out that co-dependency often affects a spouse, parents, siblings, friends, or co-workers of people afflicted with alcohol or drug dependency. Actually co-dependency is a term used to describe partners living in a relationship with a person suffering from alcoholism or other kind of addiction. Co-dependency is also found among the families where a case of chronic disease or mental illness has been found. We're focusing on codependency in romantic relationships, but codependency can be found with family and friend relationships, as well. Just click the buy button and learn from this book.

The meaning of codependency has changed over time to be more inclusive. It grew in meaning to keep up with the challenging changes of life. Codependents can still be very misunderstood by society. Sometimes, being confused with narcissism, or other personality disorders can cause the codependent to think that they are someone they are not. While everyone shows codependent behaviors from one time to another, people who grow up in dysfunctional families can show the signs of codependency throughout their whole lives. If a codependent is in denial about their destructive behavior, they can pass it down to their children. If the child who became codependent because of their parents realizes their behavioral pattern and its effects, they can seek help to break the cycle. Codependency is a learned behavior, not something that is ''just how they are'." It can definitely be overcome. A person needs to stop denying the harm their own behavior is causing them, and accept it as a problem in order to start getting better. Codependency can become an addiction for some people. Codependents usually have low self-esteem which makes them seek validation from others. This need for approval can become addicting really fast. A lack of self-worth makes the codependent believe that they are not good enough, and compare themselves to everyone. All of this becomes a vicious, damaging cycle for the codependent as they sink deeper and deeper into their addiction of needing to be needed. It is not rare to find a codependent relationship. Everyone knows a couple of relationships where one partner seems to be more into the other one and tries to gain their love and care by fulfilling their needs. They try to control their partner's behavior by manipulation techniques so subtle, and the partner won't notice. They need control because they don't feel in control of their own lives. Codependents do not have an established sense of self. They base their personality on whomever they are with to get that person to love them. The lack of self, as well as the other symptoms of codependency, creates a lot of negative effects in the codependent's life in the long-term. Codependents are often so focused on their partner's needs and wants that they forget to take care of their own. Having learned that doing things for themselves was selfish from a young age, they put everyone else's needs before theirs. They might not have many friends because they spend so much time trying to gain control of their partner's lives; they are exhausted. They might jump from one job to another since they can't prioritize their work over their relationship.Unresolved codependent patterns can cause a person to develop a drug addiction, alcoholism, other forms of addictions, disordered eating behaviors, and other self-destructive behaviors. It is important for a person to become aware of their actions and feelings before it is too late to prevent them from developing codependency anorexia, or other problematic conditions. That said, this book covers the following: Core of co-dependency Signs of codependency Advantages and disadvantages of co-dependency Types of codependent behavior Codependents and their personalities The habits of codependent individuals Codependency and boundaries Narcissist as a co-dependency magnate Codependency in the workplace Improving your co-dependent life Changing a codependent relationship Conquering codependency Moving on with your life Common misconceptions about co-dependency...

A nationally recognized author and codependency expert examines the roots of shame and its connection with codependent relationships. Learn how to heal from their destructive hold by implementing eight steps that will empower the real you, and lead to healthier relationships. Shame: the torment you feel when you’re exposed, humiliated, or rejected; the feeling of not being good enough. It’s a deeply painful and universal emotion, yet is not frequently discussed. For some, shame lurks in the unconscious, undermining self-esteem, destroying confidence, and leading to codependency. These codependent relationships—where we overlook our own needs and desires as we try to care for, protect, or please another—often cover up abuse, addiction, or other harmful behaviors. Shame and codependency feed off one another, making us feel stuck, never able to let go, move on, and become the true self we were meant to be. In Conquering Shame and Codependency, Darlene Lancer sheds new light on shame: how codependents’ feelings and beliefs about shame affect their identity, their behavior, and how shame can corrode relationships, destroying trust and love. She then provides eight steps to heal from shame, learn to love yourself, and develop healthy relationships.
