Codependence

Do Right…By Yourself

“Always do the right thing, despite the games someone else is playing.” – Tracy A. Malone

Don’t Forget

“Always remember who you were before knowing a narcissist. If you don’t know who you were, invent who you want to be.” – Tracy A. Malone

Alchemical Gratitude

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” – Melody Beattie

Go Your Own Way

“Detachment is letting another person experience their consequences instead of taking responsibility for their actions.” – Unknown

Rock the Boat Gently

“Many of us live in denial of who we truly are because we fear losing someone or something – and there are times that if we don’t rock the boat, too often the one we lose is ourselves. It feels good to be accepted, loved, and approved of by others. But often the membership fee to belong to that club is far too high of a price to pay.” – Dennis Merritt Jones

It’s Not You, It’s Me

“A codependent person is one who has let another person’s behavior affect him or her, and who is obsessed with controlling that person’s behavior.” Melody Beattie

Priority One

Clear Cut

“Use strong boundaries to limit your exposure to unnecessary negativity in life. Learn to say ‘No’ and ‘No More.’ You deserve peace.” – Akiroq

Snap Out of It

“The formula is simple: In any given situation, detach and ask, “What do I need to do to take care of myself?” – Melody Beattie

For the Birds

“Settling for crumbs doesn’t keep you fed – it keeps you starving.” – Danielle LaPorte
