Are You Ready for a Challenge?

Insignificant. Alone. Broken. Abandoned. Insecure. Afraid. Worthless. Crazy. Pathetic. Ugly. Unlovable. Stupid... These words, along with countless others, are how I use to feel about myself. They screamed in my head and lived in my heart. I believed them with every ounce of my being. It seemed that if I already believed these things then... Continue Reading →

Knowing My “Place”

Whoooo I on a roll about this one! Let's see, how do I put it all into words. Oh I have plenty of words coming out of my mouth but writing about it is going to be a bit challenging...I think. We'll see. So in the course of dealing with my clients, there are... Continue Reading →

Watching the Dance From Afar

One of the most frustrating things for a recovering codependent is to watch someone, who knows nothing of codependency, dance the endless and exhausting dance. It doesn't matter how much you explain what is happening on the dance floor, because you are all too familiar with it, they still dance. Once again reminding me, that... Continue Reading →

It's more comfortable that way because it's what we know, I guess. Here are some of the lies I seem... Continue Reading →

Oh this sucks!

I will forever be codependent. There is no cure. It is not something I can take a pill for or watch my diet or exercise. The only way to keep it at bay, is to put into practice what I have learned over the years and know that tomorrow will be a better day. As codependents,... Continue Reading →

I’m FINE…are you?

My normal and usual response when someone asks, "How are you?" is to respond with, "I'm fine" or often times, "Great!". Sometimes it's the truth and sometimes it's not. When it's not, you can't always tell because I have become so good at masking my feeling. (I was going to use the phrase, "I have... Continue Reading →

Love Is Letting Go

Today was another sad day of letting go of something so dear and precious to me and my children. Another opportunity to do the right thing and another chapter closed. Today my sweet Oreo went to "Doggie Heaven". We have had Oreo since she was 6 weeks old. An adorable Australian Shepherd, Chihuahua mix. She... Continue Reading →

What I Choose Today

My day has been much better today than it has been in a week. I have not cried once, though I did tear up a bit because I have to put one of my dear pets to sleep, but that's a story for another day. I still did not get much sleep but overall, I... Continue Reading →
