Thought For The Day

Quote #1

“Codependency is the addiction of attempting to control aspects outside of yourself that are uncontrollable. By doing so, you forfeit your innate ability to take control and create your true life.” (Unknown)

Quote #2

“When you are dealing with someone who is hurting, remember that your boundaries are both necessary for you and helpful for them. If you have been enabling them to be irresponsible, your limit setting may nudge them toward responsibility.” (Henry Cloud)

Quote #3

“At some point you will realize that you have done too much for someone, that the only next possible step to do is to stop. Leave them alone. Walk away. It’s not like you’re giving up and it’s not like you shouldn’t try. It’s just that you have to draw the line of determination from desperation. What is truly yours will eventually be yours and what is not, no matter how hard you try, will never be.” (Unknown)

Bonus Quote

“The signs of a codependent relationship include always taking care of others, having no friends that are only your own, your only hobbies include both of you, you stress out about leaving him behind, his mood = your mood, it’s hard to go out with friends without him, you fear being alone without him, you feel most comfortable being the giver, you get angry when he refuses to help you, you wonder why he doesn’t give to you like you give to him, and you worry about what he’ll do if you choose to leave.” (Melissa Satti)

Peace, love, light, and joy,
