Each week, I will be sharing information on a subject with which I have some experience with, as well as what I see quite often in my practice.  The subject is, Codependency.  I usually utilize a book entitled, Codependent No More by Melody Beattie.  Ms. Beattie has written many books on this subject, but this is one of my favorites.   She defines a codependent person as, “one who has let another person’s behavior affect him or her and who is obsessed with controlling that person’s behavior.”  This other person can be anyone closely connected to that person.  Use this week to think/write about how you have “allowed” someone else’s behavior to affect you and the outcome.  Make it a great week!
