Codependent Recovery — How to Control Your Reactions to Toxic People and Situations that might trigger you. Sharing some anecdotes of every day kinds of interactions with my father to illustrate how a codependent is trained to ignore their own needs. These examples were taken from regular life leading up to my having a heart attack and subsequently being abandoned by my family. I didn’t know this neglect and emotional absence was abuse. As recovering codependents we are feeling our emotions for the first time. We aren’t suppressing our feelings, nor are we denying or ignoring what we think, feel, believe, or experience. In childhood we were not allowed to express all the emotions if one or both of our parents had narcissistic personality disorder, antisocial personality disorder, or was codependent. We most likely have complex post traumatic stress disorder or cptsd and even if we are estranged from our narcissistic family now as adults we are healing from narcissistic abuse and trying to stop our reactions to triggers. We were shamed or punished for feeling sad, angry, and sometimes even happy. If we are a child of narcissist. Today’s episode is all about recovery from codependency.
NOTE: THIS VIDEO WAS RECORDED LIVE. This means that I had to make the best of what happened the first time, and my husband was apparently not supervising our dogs so they broke in just a few minutes in and kept me on my toes. I did my best to edit out their interruptions for the re-broadcast on youtube, but it is clearly a live video. Hopefully that’s the authentic appeal of live video that people love!
