The Language of Letting Go
Melody Beattie, the bestselling author of Codependent No More and Beyond Codependency , has now created Hazelden’s first meditation book for codependents. Here are reflections that nurture spiritual and emotional health, serenity, and recovery. Focusing on self-esteem and acceptance, and written in the direct, unsentimental style of Beattie’s bestsellers, these daily meditations give voice to the thoughts and feelings common to men and women in recovery. They encourage fruitful reflection on problem-solving, self-awareness, sexuality, intimacy, detachment, attachment, acceptance, feelings, relationships, spirituality, and more.
Offering hope and inspiration, tempered with the clear-eyed perspective of one who has been there and back, the author empowers readers to affirm who they are–their beliefs, thoughts, instincts, feelings–and, ultimately, their ability to change. These meditations are tools designed to help recovering codependents realize the goal Beattie defines as “stopping the pain and gaining control of your life”
