Overcoming Codependency

co·de·pend·en·cy

noun

  1. excessive emotional or psychological reliance on a partner, typically one who requires support on account of an illness or addiction.
  2. "the tie that binds most of us together in this trap called codependency"
  • Like our professional friends, we, too, are aware that there are wrong forms of dependence.
  • Even when our fortunes had not ebbed that much and we nevertheless found ourselves alone in the world, we still vainly tried to be secure by some unhealthy kind of domination or dependence.


  • This very form of faulty dependence has caused many a rebellious alcoholic to conclude that dependence of any sort must be intolerably damaging.


  • Some of us have taken very hard knocks to learn this truth: Job or no job -- wife or no wife -- we simply do not stop drinking so long as we place dependence upon other people ahead of dependence on God.

About the Podcast

In This Moment with Toby C
ITM
In This Moment w/ Toby C. is a "concept" show.
The "concept" is for the suffering listener to imagine themselves getting better....
How?... By imagining themselves paying attention to another suffering soul - and firing up the other person's imagination - that they too, will get better. That "this too shall pass." This is a concept show that enables the listener / sufferer to get better through the imagination. The imagination is a first cousin of something called faith. This faith / imagination is a portal through which the sufferer, through the power of the open mind, can begin a journey to move away from destructive self-consciousness and closer toward the healing power of God-consciousness. The final concept of this show is that the listener / sufferer will change their "message" - from the insanity of the head to the serenity of the heart.. How? .... Through sponsorship.... listen... every show has a subliminal message from God... Keep an open mind and let Him in! God Bless and happy healing!!
