Codependent No More: How to Stop Controlling Others and Start Caring for Yourself
About this deal
I have been aware of the term 'Codependent' for a long time, but it only recently popped up on my personal radar as something to look into and understand better. We start by taking responsibility for our lives – not just the day-to-day problems, but also all our spiritual, emotional, and physical needs. Lastly, when the problem gets worse and worse, the codependent becomes angry, bitter and dejected as a result of their failed attempts to gain some level of control over a situation that was already impossibly difficult to deal with.

The truth was I didn't UNDERSTAND the meaning of the word codependent, or the behaviors of someone with codependency, and certainly not the birth of these behaviors. A pioneering voice in self-help literature and the recovery movement, Melody Beattie is the author of many bestselling books—including The Language of Letting Go, Playing It by Heart, The Grief Club, Beyond Codependency, and The Codependent No More Workbook . This inspirational book gives the reader an inside look at the miraculous phenomenon that occurs after loss -- the being welcomed into a new of sorts, a circle of people who have lived through similar grief and pain, whether it be the loss of a child, a spouse, a career, or even one's youth.Her international bestselling book, Codependent No More, introduced the world to the term “codependency” in 1986. Beattie began drinking at age 12, was a full-blown alcoholic by age 13, and a junkie by 18, even as she graduated from high school with honors. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. After reading other reviews on here talking about how she puts therapy down I know this book is definitely not for me.

Beattie, at one point, claims she is not promoting the 12 Steps approach and defends her promotion (coz I say she is promoting it) by saying something like -'it is just my opinion'.

I was already in love with Hildegard von Bingen, and rather fond of St Claire and St Francis (I spent some time visiting a rural nunnery built alongside a monastery dedicated to these two).
