From the Publisher:
Concentrating on self-esteem and acceptance, this book offers meditations for men and women recovering from codependency and aids them in their attempt to gain control of their lives
Melody Beattie, author of CO-DEPENDENT NO MORE, wrote this inspiring entry in the series of meditation books published by the respected rehab center, Hazelden. Based on the teachings of Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon, as well as on nondenominational spirituality, it is aimed specifically at those people struggling to free themselves from unhealthy relationships. The book is filled with inspirational food for thought on topics such as setting boundaries, goals, and limits; the difficult process of learning self-acceptance, even self-love; and, of course, how to leave a loved one who has become "toxic" to your well being. You can also learn to accept help, to turn defeat into its own sort of victory, and to detach from family issues.
