In this episode I speak with Amanda McFadyen about all things codependency. I share openly about my own struggle with codependency and how boundaries are changing my life and enriching my relationships. Amanda shares her story about her journey to living her life mantra of "you alone are enough". We break down what codependency is including the victim/saver dynamics typically played out in codependent relationships, the need to be wanted or chosen, not feeling whole in our sense of self, toxic shame, attachment trauma, holding and creating space in your relationships, and reparenting our inner child. If you struggle with relationships then this podcast is a must listen to.
