Codependence has so many negative connotations. Most of us know the symptoms because we feel them, or they’ve been pointed out to us. But knowing the symptoms doesn’t help if all you feel is shame and embarrassment.
What you really want is a deeper understanding of where it all comes from, and a roadmap to healing.
And that’s exactly what Tackling Codependence will give you.
What most people don’t know is that the root of all codependence is childhood trauma.
If even one of your parents was neglectful, over-domineering, enmeshed, abusive, or abandoned you, you are likely codependent.
If even one of your parents was raised by someone who did any of the above to them, they are likely codependent, and that trickled down to you.
All because of the shame these experiences created in you.
