Living Free Every Day®
Thoughts for Today
Codependency is harmful because the person becomes mastered by a loved one's problem or becomes a loved one's master (playing God).
Generally, people are not aware that they are enabling and becoming codependent. They are trying to do the right thing, but too often they feel guilty because their efforts are not good enough to make the person they love change. Children are especially vulnerable to this distorted, guilt-ridden thinking.
These thoughts were drawn from

Part 1: Learning to Live Free
Part 2: Helping Others to Live Free through Small Groups
