Where's My Xanax?

~Diamond In The Mud~

on November 11, 2014

A friend of mine was very depressed today after realizing that she has a problem with co-dependency in her romantic relationships. While she knew that this awareness is the first step toward healing the pattern, she felt upset and ashamed to be “such a flawed human being”.

I told her what I am about to tell you. Every single one of us is struggling with attitudes and behaviors that are self-defeating. Some of our demons have diagnoses and labels attached to them such as co-dependency or alcoholism. Others are not so clearly defined but still have us unhappy at times. Please remember that we all have our problems.

When we end our denial and admit we have a problem it does NOT mean we are unworthy and flawed or that we should feel ashamed of ourselves. In reality our self defeating patterns. Every single one of them, Began as survival strategies in response to our dysfunctional families, societies, cultures and religions. Instead of self-blame and self-doubt, have complete self-compassion for the pain that created them. And with love keeping your eyes wide open, never lose sight of the total beauty and worthiness of YOU!

A diamond that was dropped in the mud is still a diamond! It just needs to be cleaned for its radiant perfection to be revealed. Whatever your demons, whatever you are struggling with. Every one of you is a diamond. Perfect. Flawless. Magnificent. Wash your Diamond Self with Unconditional Love for YOURSELF so that your beautiful inner light can happily shine through.

    co dependancy…..not good at all. Some girls I´ve been with had that issue, and I don´t think it has much to do that they had great feelings for me, it´s more that they have to clinge to a person because of their own insecurities. So hope your girlfriend gets over it. Not a good life being dependant on others, you can share things with a person you like or love but there´s a big leap from sharing to being codependant.
