How to Break Free and Live Your Own Life.
Codependency is an extremely common condition which, from time to time, affects us all. Codependents are people who deny their genuine emotions and depend on others for their own sense of self-worth and self-esteem. They often excel at coping and caring, but underneath there is always the wish to comply (please others) and control (manipulate others). This can lead to illness and personal problems that are never fully addressed. Codependents wonder why they are unable to form satisfactory relationships and why things tend to go wrong for them.
In this much-needed book, psychoanalytic psychotherapist and codependency expert David Stafford explains how codependency starts and how it manifests itself. He shows you how to recognise and understand the syndrome and learn how to break away from it and live your own life.
