Live Your life In Balance By Breaking the Cycle of Co-Dependency And Compulsive Additive Behaviour
-Do you feel trapped or immobilised; less than others; or do you present an "all together" act?
-Are you overly dependent on others, becoming confused about where you end and someone else begins?
-Do you have difficulty knowing yourself or letting others know who you are?
-Do you know what your needs/ wants are and how to address them in adult relationships?
-Do you experience life as "all or nothing"?
Co-dependency is the underlying cause of many addictions, such as alcoholism, drug dependency, eating disorders, workaholism, sex addition and love addicted relationships. It is Australia's most unrecognised disease. It originates from the denial of the "true self" in order to survive within a dysfunctional family system. Co-dependents either isolate, or become very focused on and affected by others' behaviour. They have an impaired relationship with themselves and therefore don't really know their true inner self. As co-dependency progresses it will result in stress, misery, disrupted relationships, controlling behaviour and physical illness.
In 'Set Yourself Free' Shirley Smith uses Australian case studies and provides practical keys to show how to break the cycle of co-dependency and compulsive addictive behaviour, unlock your creativity and discover your true self.
