Publisher's Summary

Do you feel trapped by patterns of codependent behavior?

Do you feel a true loss of identity?

Codependency can leave you feeling unloved, ignored, and unappreciated. You might find yourself having a hard time making decisions for yourself. Or you might find yourself being manipulated by others. You might even have a hard time identifying this pain as valid because you are so used to these feelings being a part of your life.

The codependent loop relies on the fear that you are failing someone. Fear that you are not good enough. Fear that you won't be able either to abandon the person or to do your best in your relationship. You base your decision on this fear instead of choosing what you know is right, rooted in honesty and trust of oneself.

The Codependency Recovery Guide teaches you how to break the cycle of codependency and puts you on the path to recovery.

My name is Damian Blair. As a retired couple’s therapist, I have witnessed the damaging effects of both codependent and narcissistic behavior in the lives of my clients. I wrote this book to help those who find themselves unable to break free from codependent behavior. It was written to allow you to find your true voice and not be taken advantage of by others.

In this book, you will discover:

  • How to finally let go of enabling behavior
  • Proven exercises to create greater self care and awareness
  • How to set healthy boundaries
  • The secrets to detaching with love
  • How to stop being a people pleaser…once and for all
  • The keys to developing assertive communication styles
  • How to recognize and overcome the codependent narcissist trap 
  • And so much more!

The Codependency Recovery Guide will help you to be self-disciplined, and have a more honest relationship with yourself. This book will work for you even if you feel like your situation is hopeless or beyond repair.

Life changing

This is a topic that is highly relevant to me, therefore I purchased this book to learn more about codependency. This book taught me about the origins of codependency, the features of codependency, the roles of dysfunction, what boundaries are and how to set them, and much more. The author also provides us with recovery steps and activities, one of the most powerful instruments for rehabilitation, and advice for living a balanced life.

Informative

This book offers a fantastic realistic, rational, step-by-step approach to transitioning from codependency to inter dependency. I've read at least three other books on the topic, and this is by far the best; it's straightforward and succinct, with a cheerful, can-do attitude that's grounded in reality. The author, who has firsthand experience with codependency, gently guides you along the path, pointing you the steps to take. The workouts are excellent and really beneficial.

Must-have resource for codependency.

I believe this book has provided me with the clarity I require to understand which of my habits are the result of codependency, as well as to acknowledge and work on my codependent relationships. I've attributed anxiety, melancholy, ADHD, perfectionism, and "laziness" to many factors throughout my life, but I'm increasingly learning that they're all based in codependency. Obviously, this isn't the answer to everything, but it has provided me with a variety of viewpoints.

Helped me switch my thinking

I have struggled with relationships, people pleasing, and fear of abandonment for so long. I was tired of constantly being anxious I made someone upset so I started looking online and found this book. I am so thankful I started it. This book has allowed me to put myself in a better mindset, switch my thinking and give me strategies to work on myself. If you are someone who struggles with any of these things I highly recommend you give it a chance.

Very Relevant book.

Codependency is one of those subjects that few people discuss. It's personal, and this book delves thoroughly into the issue. This is a book that I think everyone who wants to get out of codependency should purchase and listen to!

An excellent book!

True love is not codependency. It's a love addiction that can ruin your relationship as well as your personal life. Purchasing this book allowed me to realize some of the errors I had been making and to hope for the best. A fantastic author and a fantastic book!

This workbook is great!

This is an excellent book. It teaches us how to be more self-reliant and less codependent on others. You'll learn how to prioritize yourself and your needs, how to develop a roadmap for yourself, how to feel calmer and more confident, and how to feel free and clear again, among other things.

Powerful book to me.

This is the workbook for you if you enjoy interacting with others. I've always felt compelled to say yes and offer assistance to everyone who needs it. This workbook has taught me how to create boundaries and how to say no. Really grateful to this book.

Good introduction.

By allowing me to introspect and know the emotional scars and blanks you are attempting to fill with another person, this book has taught me how to accept and identify my codependency. In a relationship, codependency works both ways, and after completing these activities, you should have a good idea of how much codependency you and your spouse have.
