004: The Seeds Of Co-Dependency: Where They Came From And Healing It

Do you ever meet someone and you’re just like man, this person is super cool, I want them in my life more? That’s exactly how I felt with Edie! I may have only met her virtually but oh my gosh, I’m so intrigued by her and all the fun, amazing things she’s doing in her life.

I could have chatted with her all day as we dove into the topic of co-dependency. Listen in as Edie shares her story about how she became co-dependent. There wasn’t any addiction, abuse, or some of the other things you hear a co-dependent talk about from their younger years, when Edie was growing up.  Do you ever really recover from co-dependency? Listen in and hear what Edie has to say about her experience.

You guys… Edie is soooo cool! Seriously, be sure to listen to the end because I LOVE what she chats about at the end! I don’t know if I would be ‘brave’ enough to go around doing this, but the idea fascinates me!

Recommended Self-Help Book:

One of the things I ask my guests (but not talked about in their episode) is if they have a favorite self-help book(s). This is just something I like to know because I’m huge into self-development/self-help and am always on the lookout for more to read. Thought it would be fun to share the recommendations 🙂
