How To Overcome Co-dependency The rule of 7 as it relates to Codependency...
Codependency is thinking, feeling and actions created by the subconscious normally in the preteen stage of development...
A codependent person generally excepted 'adult' responsibilities during this stage of development...and is usually described as unusually obsessed with finding and keeping love, affection and acceptance, even at the expense of their own personality or happiness. Others views are generally misunderstanding of the label codependency...Many people cannot understand why someone codependent cannot or will not just stop...looking for the addictive like affection of abuse, and take the action steps with individuals who need to be removed from their life. Others have contempt for the codependents apparent inability to just say no to their partner/others, and...even when they say "yes" a threat is created to their constituents.
Understanding the Subconscious: Where do codependency feelings come from? If you ever took a psychology course in college you may have learned…
Thoughts lead to feelings
Feelings lead to actions
Actions lead to results
Your personal blueprint consists of a combination of your thoughts, feelings, and actions in the arena of how you live life. To break the cycle of codependency... is not easy... unlessyougo to the root issues in your subconscious mind.
(See what I recommend below for those who need Codependency counseling).
Bottom-line...most people acquire their codependent behavior in childhood. Having grown up in an emotionally unstable family life can help people-pleasing behaviors found with most codependents. Sadly...the same children who have worked hard to appease an emotionally unstable father are at the whim of an alcoholic partner as an adult.
The cycles of codependency and abusive behaviors tend to run in families and are passed from parents to children.
It is important to note that the cycle will continue unless someone (YOU) decides to end it.
When your are ready to account that you have codependent tendencies, there are several steps you can take to increase your chances of success.
#1…decide that you are the first interest or priority; your physical and emotional needs are important and should be a priority in your life. Initially, this can be a difficult task to achieve, because it feels very "selfish".
Did you know? Many of our 'cultural ideals' of romantic relationships are based on a model of co-dependency. If you judge yourself by using the 'Disney movies' and paperback romance novels your order, you will fall woefully short.
While codependent 'love' certainly does not mean much to offer those around you (dependent on you and you codependent on them), it should never be completely one-sided. Realize that you cannot keep up a relationship (even on your own) for to long with out...emotional COLLAPSE. Your partner must contribute differently and equally to your emotional needs or you will fall by the wayside.
2. Ask yourself whom do you surround yourself with... Do you surround yourself with emotional 'vampires'?
In popular fiction, vampires suck the blood of their innocent victims. Many codependent people surround themselves with emotional vampires (other co-dependent people who seem to consume the last drop of your emotional reserves without contributing anything in return).
If you are determined to end their co-dependent behavior it isn't easy...you don't have to cut these people out of your life completely, I suggest you simply setting healthy boundaries. If you struggle doing this you may need counseling. (See what I suggest below). When a friend asks a favor or any other indication of this...your test begins...can you say no?
3. Learn the art of saying No, and it’s meaning.
Here are some more signs...Are you saying, "I would never do that", only to find yourself lowering your standards to meet your partner? Are you blaming others for the bad decisions you made in your personal life? Although most codependent people can feel like saying "no" they rarely take their family there, ...learn to say "no" and to say what really is...this is the first step towards creating healthy boundaries.
4. The use of the word "no" and mean it takes practice.
Be sure to start small. Choose a situation where you would normally 'give in' to avoid confrontation. Instead of automatically guessing your own values and value, you remember why you chose to say "no" to begin with. If you keep your original intent in mind, you'll find it much easier to stay still.
Note: The rule of 7 states that: "It takes 7 successful repeated attempts to break a habit".

1) In relation to mostly on the power of your associate for your own well-being. When we are too much reliant on another for power, we rely less on the power from Source/God.
