Examining Codependent Relationships (COD Lesson)
This lesson describes the helping, rescuing, and enabling behaviors that define codependent relationships. In an effort to help a loved one, we often cringe when their actions bring unpleasant consequences. We wish we could interrupt the inevitable. Reducing the consequence for someone may appear helpful at first, but reducing the pain of a consequence often reduces the behavior change that a consequence is expected to bring. This lesson reveals eleven strategies to set personal limits, define your boundaries, and navigate difficult relationships successfully.
