In this week’s video, I’m venturing into the realm of relationships to describe an unhealthy pattern of behaviour which is often experienced by survivors of child sexual abuse. It is crucial that we identify the unhelpful drives within us that push us in the direction of making bad decisions in our personal lives, so we can begin to dismantle those patterns and cease to be on autopilot mode. We have to be mindful of our decisions and attract healthy relationships. This video is an introduction to codependency.
If this video resonates with you, then I hope you will continue to learn about this issue and begin to recover. Recovery means focusing all that energy and attention on your own life instead, and on what’s genuinely in your best interests. Love isn’t supposed to be a struggle that compromises your own wellbeing and self respect.
