About this deal

In this accessible and engaging workbook, Beattie uses her trademark down-to-earth style to offer readers a Twelve Step, interactive program to stop obsessing about others by developing the insight, strength, and resilience to start taking care of themselves.

Beattie labai smulkinasi ir pateikia daugybę apibūdinimų, bet iš esmės kopriklausomieji jai yra tie, kurie nelinkę rūpintis savimi, linkę rūpintis tik kitų žmonių problemomis, jaučia nesveiką (nu tokią superhuman) atsakomybę už VISKĄ, yra linkę kontroliuoti viską aplinkui ir taip pat visa tai dramatizuoti, jaustis aukomis. For me, the constant references to alcohol and Al-Anon grated on me, as did mentions of her religious persuasion. But I was assured by the person who handed me this book, by looking at their happiness and personality, that the end must be better. While I didn't do the activities in the book, I can see them helping and making all the difference if you are serious about improving your life.Kad iš esmės tai terapinė knyga, ji nespaudžia tavęs atpažinti savo problemą ir save kaip blogą ar pamatyti, kad tai, ką tu laikei normaliu elgesiu, nėra normalu. Learn how to lean on yourself, find out what needs to be done to detach from these habitual tendencies, and you’ll see a significant change right away. Melody Beattie's enthusiasm for life jumps out at you from the pages, and that made for some quick and easy reading. How have I demonstrated this, and where have I experienced this became questions I wanted to answer. Sometimes, we feel like the people cannot be held accountable for their wrongdoings and we decide to DO the backbreaking work on their behalf.

If you are unaware of the calamity induced by the lack of independent spirit, then you’re really putting yourself in a secondary-position. There was some really useful discussion about this, as well as plenty of individuals' stories which aided, to some degree, in describing some real-life scenarios that 'codependents' find themselves living and reliving. Within days of my starting to take an interest in the topic this book was referenced in another I was then reading (Traumata, by Meera Atkinson). At first, most people will be naturally drawn to a codependent because of the codependent's ability to give and give and give and give.Outside of The Five Love Languages, when it comes to developing relationships or dealing with negative habits and experiences, I hadn’t read much on other areas of relationships that could use some development. It's easy to keep the bar set low for ourselves in all parts of our life: work, relationships, money.
