Do you have a hard time saying to “NO” to people? Do you often sacrifice your own needs to accommodate other people? Do you have a difficulty setting firm boundaries?

Are you unhappy in your relationship but unable to leave?

Does your marriage or relationship take up your thoughts and energy? Are you the one that is constantly making sacrifices in your relationship? Then you may be in a codependent relationship.

The term “codependency” was coined a few decades ago in the context of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) to acknowledge and support partners of alcoholics and chemical-dependents who were intertwined in the destructive lives of those they loved.

Darlene Lancer is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and expert author on relationships and codependency. In this episode she talks about:

  • What is codependency?
  • What are the symptoms of codependency?
  • What’s the origin of codependency?
  • How does shame play a part in codependency?
  • How does codependency and shame affect relationship?
  • And of course we are talking about recovery-what are some of the steps required for recovery?
