Greetings from the
You may have noticed that some of the lead
articles in the past few newsletters are from one of my
unpublished manuscripts, Becoming the Person You Always
Wanted to Marry. The first section of this manuscript
emphasizes developing a better relationship with yourself—the
foundation of any good relationship. I continue this theme
this month with the topic of codependence.
What is healthy dependency in a
relationship and how do we recognize when it crosses the line
into becoming a detriment to our own growth and our
relationships? Good questions. Let us look at codependency to
help us better examine our own relationships.

Question: I am continuing to
enjoy interrelating with the man in my life. I am learning
much, and growing in self-confidence little by little. My
current perception of things is that Jeff easily gets angry
and I easily get fearful (I suffer with Obsessive-Compulsive
Disorder). My question: Is it that I've attracted (and am
attracted to) a man who gets angry in order to heal the
frightened parts of myself, or what? I'm wondering. From Faith

Immersed in idle words,
we elude the chance to
communicate feeling and thought.
Feelings, tentatively tossed,
can barely scale the walls of
our self-imprisoning fears.
and a chattering mind can
quell the intuitive Voice within.
As life's engaged to
experience the echo of self,
doors open to who we are.
When we recognize our
divine nature, our spirit
soars over obsolete walls.
Free, then, to love ourselves,
we can lovingly embrace
a world of differences.
