Just What The Doctor Ordered: Core Symptom #3 of Codependency

Core Symptom #3 of Codependency....difficulty owning your own reality. Woo, girl. This one gonna hurt...

Oftentimes, those who grew up being ignored, attacked, or abandoned–in any way–likely struggle with owning and accepting their own reality.

What if you grew up in a great home...could you still struggle with this? Absolutely.

Pia Melody looks at one's own reality in 2 ways: 1. knowing your reality but not stating it for fear of rejection/not being good enough/not having the right answer/being abandoned. 2. Not knowing your own reality and thus not being able to express it.

Being able to know your own reality...your thoughts, feelings, experiences...it's a beautiful thing but if you've been hurt enough times maybe it's just best you keep that to yourself.

We're going there and talking about ways in which we all struggle to own and express our own reality, our own experiences and feelings.

Your feelings, thoughts and experiences are unique to you. Own them.

Just What The Doctor Ordered: Core Symptom #2 of Codependency

Boundaries. They are sexy when someone has them and it is gross when someone lacks them. Bleh.

In today's episode, we are talking all about them. What are boundaries to the 4 different types of boundaries, as seen by Pia Melody in her awesome book "Facing Codependency."

Just What The Doctor Ordered: Core Symptom #1 of Codependency

We are stoked to get this baby launched! It's super apparent to us that there is a lack of solid information around mental health and we'd like to stand in the gap and bring some knowledge, insight and understanding. Olivia, since she IS the resident therapist at NGP HQ, will be spearheading this up. Here's what you can expect:

1. Just What The Doctor Ordered will be much more brief than our regular episodes.

2. Olivia will be flying solo most of the time. Amy may pop in every now and again and a guest may, too, but largely you'll be chatting--er, listening--to Olivia

3. Topical discussions, book discussions, answering specific questions that are sent to us by YOU.

4. Always a good time.

Enjoy the show!

Codependency. You may not be able to really explain WHAT it is but you know it's bad, right? Olivia is going to unpack it for you over the next 5 weeks as she dives into the 5 core symptoms of codependency. Hold on to your hats, kids.

Do us a favor: go buy Pia Mellody's book "Facing Codependency" and walk alongside Olivia as she unpacks these big concepts.

Enjoy!

MINISODE: 13 Reasons Why We Love Mental Health Part 2

Wow. It is incredible how much incredible feedback we have received from our last episode: 13 reasons why we love mental health. Seriously. Mind-blown.

We figured that it was a big enough topic for us to come back and do a little minisode...and Olivia felt like she wanted to better explain a few areas that she just couldn't get to in the last episode. ;o)

So, we explored ways we self-sabotage, what the heck is codependency, why shopping around for a counselor is a super good idea and connecting with those around you because we're all going through something.

Check out our facebook to WATCH us if you'd prefer :)

Enjoy!
