Self-care and Codependency

Self-care and Codependency


Posted By on Jul 2, 2016

Self-care and Codependency Why self-care is the more important topic I talk more specifically about taking care of yourself than I do about codependency and some of you may be wondering why. The reason is that I think a lack of self-care and self- love is at the heart of codependency. Living with or in a dysfunctional relationship damages the soul. It can cause us to lose sight of ourselves and our potential. I think when we get used...

Better Communication, Freer Life

Better Communication, Freer Life How learning to communicate can lead to a happier life For a long time, the way my family dealt with uncomfortable situations was by pushing them under the rug.

And then, 4:30 hits. That’s the time that usually does it for me. I can feel myself breathing faster. My mind begins to dart from one thing to the next. Time seems to be moving in fast forward.

Name Change- A Little Explanation

I had a few people ask why I changed the name of my Facebook page from “Novuste Coaching” to “The Codependent Coach” so I wanted to take a few minutes to explain and alleviate some confusion. When I first set up Novuste, it was with the intention to work with families who were battling with addiction. I hadn’t yet made the distinction of who I thought my ideal client would be.
