CO-DEPENDENCY

 

Exploring the Issue of Co-Dependency

Co-dependency is when a person’s need for approval or validation from another person allows them to be controlled or manipulated, or a person who attempts to manipulate or control someone. They are willing to compromise their own values, choices, and behavior at the expense of their personal well-being.

Characteristics of someone struggling with co-dependency may include, but are not limited to: 

How We Find Recovery

Through a relationship with Jesus Christ as Savior and Higher Power, and by working through the 8 principles and the Christ-centered 12 steps, we can find freedom from our hurts, hang ups and habits.

Characteristics of someone in recovery for codependency may include but are not limited to:

Small Group Guidelines 

  1. Keep your sharing focused on your own thoughts, feelings, and actions. Please limit your sharing to three to five minutes. 
  2. There is NO cross-talk please. Cross-talk is when two people engage in a dialogue during the meeting. Each person sharing is free to express feelings without interruptions. 
  3. We are here to support one another. We will not attempt to “fix” one another. 
  4. Anonymity and confidentiality are basic requirements. What is shared in the group stays in the group. The only exception is when someone threatens to injure themselves or others. 
  5. Offensive language has no place in a Christ-centered recovery group.
