I consumed personal & spiritual development resources like a starved child but it wasn’t until my sister found recovery from addiction before I identified the source of my unstable happiness - CODEPENDENCY. I’d managed to avoid addiction but so many aspects of codependency had manifested in my life under the guise of being a good person.
Since this revelation, I’ve become crystal clear on my values and selective with what I agree to. I now have a sense of freedom I didn’t think was possible. I’ve completely redefined what it means to be a good person (hint: it has nothing to do with pleasing others).
Boundary setting, personal accountability, true forgiveness, and trusting my intuition were once acts of courage but now this is simply how I operate…with confidence and without second-guessing. I actually FEEL GOOD about advocating for myself and love who I am today!
I spent most of my life trying to do what I thought made me a good person and carefully straddle the tension of being everything to everyone. Coming from a small town where the local lifestyles swung drastically between religion & addiction, it was inevitable that my inner voice would become snuffed out by fear, shame, and guilt.
As substance abuse & oppressive use of the Gospel divided my family and friends, I found myself either trying to save people or avoiding situations hoping for the best. I had my own life, but I was always caught up in what I thought was helping others. I truly believed that what made me lovable and accepted was always being who someone needed me to be.
I wasn’t even sure what I truly desired for my own life and thought that putting my needs above anyone else’s made me selfish. I lived on the precipice of overwhelm and not-enoughness.
