I was perusing the internet and came across an article using the phrase “black belt codependent”. It made me laugh but more than that, I realized I could consider myself one. I kind of like the phrase.
I found another article, What Does a Black Belt Really Mean, and found this little tid-bit,
“The tree has reached maturity and overcome the darkness. It must now plant seeds for the future.”
Now I really like this! It’s exactly how I feel about recovery. I have matured and overcome so much and now I want to give back, encourage and support others who are struggling with codependency.
Reading these articles gave me the idea to do an interview series with recovering codependents. As you can see by the title of this post, I want to call it the “Black Belt Codependent Interview Series”. I haven’t quite thought it all through yet but it’s coming…soon.
