Codependents; Stay In The Present Moment!

“If you are codependent, it means as a matter of course that you are in effect stuck in the past, playing out behavior learnt in childhood in the adult world.


Codependency is a behavioral issue based on dysfunctional connection with primary caregivers and unless managed will follow the sufferer through the ages and different relationships.



A belief of mine is that link needs to be processed and eventually broken if a codependent is to start putting themselves in a healthy relationship with themselves and eventually others.



While therapy calls for deep work to reframe early experiences,



an important element of recovery is the ability to make the right choices in the present moment where all the evidence you need to make choices is right in front of you.”
