Codependency is “disease of the lost self”
Self-worth is something no one can take away from you. When we find it, the possibilities are endless and your relationships will be empowered by all that makes you unique! It may not have been easy for some of us to reach this point – but look what we’ve achieved when push comes to shove: We don’t need anyone else’s approval or validation any longer; instead, our own voices carry a tremendous amount of power which should never again go unheard. Let’s march forth with newfound confidence in ourselves as women who know their worth – only then can they create meaningful bonds with others while still fulfilling themselves individually!
Losing ourselves in a relationship can be like an insidious disease and this was especially true for one woman. She had gone through divorce, which she ranks as the second hardest thing next to quitting drugs– things get tough! But then something amazing happened – that same lady rediscovered her self worth. Now? Watch out because nothing will stop her from learning personal independence while still embracing relationships with strong boundaries set by herself. It’s incredibly liberating taking responsibility of your own bills, decisions and life again!
Give yourself the opportunity to reach your full potential by embracing self-worth. Think back on how codependency has held you back in life – and use it as a source of inspiration & motivation for creating an independent, empowered future. Take control over your finances, decisions, and ultimately – yourself! As liberating as this experience will be, don’t forget that if you have contentment within a relationship then cherish every moment of it.
I was always very Codependent on men. If I could back and tell my younger self one thing it would be to leave the damn men alone.
One thing I know is for certain. None of my codependent relationships have ever lasted. So stop and ask yourself “is all of this going to be worth it?”
CREATE A LIFE FOR YOURSELF FIRST
Learn who you are. Your likes, your dislikes. Who are you? Conquer being able to say NO. Don’t let people dictate your decisions or choices.
REGULARLY CHECK IN WITH YOURSELF
Take care of yourself first. Good things come when we make our self care a priority.
DO THINGS BECAUSE YOU WANT TO
Lets stop doing things because someone else wants us to. Ask yourself things like: “Am I doing this because I want to or because they want me to?”
Know your limits. Set things in your mind that you are willing to budge on and things you are not.
Know your self-worth and don’t sway from it. Confidence is sexy.
Finally freeing myself from toxic relationships, paying my own bills, & having my own say on how my OWN life goes is exhilarating.
