Recovering and Moving Forward from Codependency
Codependency is often a silent, unknown companion in many people’s lives. They can go about their daily activities feeling different and separate from the world, because codependents see things differently. Recovering from Codependency is not a quick or easy challenge, but it is a worthwhile one. Codependents owe it to themselves and to the others in their lives to acknowledge the problem, recognize the signs and make the effort to move forward, leaving codependency behind them, many times for good.
Codependent people often face an internal struggle between lingering self-doubt and the need for approval from others. As a result, interpersonal relationships at work, within the family and romantically can suffer dramatically. Codependents suffer from a nagging low self-esteem, which prompts them to seek approval from those that surround them. They face crushing self-doubt, and often feel unable to pull themselves out of the highs and lows that life throws at them. They are overly concerned about how they are perceived by others, and often face bitter disappointments when things don’t work out the way they imagined. It’s difficult for a codependent person to set boundaries with others in their lives. They live to please people, and when their attempts are not met with gratitude and appreciation, the often lash out in frustration and hurt. It’s hard for a codependent person to express what they need in a healthy and productive way, and have difficultly setting boundaries between themselves and others. Ultimately, codependents struggle with control, and seek to control relationships and circumstances that realistically are beyond their scope.
How Holistic Healing NY and The Darin Method Can Help with Codependency?
People struggling with codependency ultimately need to recognize that focusing on themselves and their own needs is not a selfish decision – it’s an empowering and freeing decision that can mean the difference between healthy thoughts, behaviors and relationships and unhealthy codependent ones. It’s not selfish to express your needs to others. It’s not unrealistic to want to be heard and understood wherever you are by those that are the closest to you. While codependency can seem frightening and limiting, recovering from codependency can be liberating. Don’t face this struggle alone, and don’t be afraid to reach out for help. It’s always a click away with a holistic approach to get you started on the right track.
