Goodbye Codependency: A 40-Day Devotional & Guided Journal to Boost Self-Care
You’re worn out taking care of so many things and people – maybe even exhausted.
You want to do less “people-pleasing” and take more “me time”.
You want to ditch the label “codependency”, as it’s worn out its welcome.
You want to enjoy a healthier relationship with yourself and others.
Here’s a refreshing resource to get that kind of momentum going.
You see, getting out of the habit of “codependent relating” involves learning the art and practice of putting yourself first, or what some call ‘self-care’. If people pleasing, running on steam to make sure everyone else is fine, attracting “the wrong person” or being a doormat sounds familiar, learning more about self-care and actually practicing it consistently can be a godsend.
Listen, dear ones, self-care is not selfish. It’s an act of stewardship, fueling our tanks so we have something of value to pour out in a healthy way. We do have a lot of demands upon us, such as raising children, working, keeping the house tidy, etc.
But if we’re so focused on the external world, including others, while neglecting ourselves, it’ll catch up with us. Our reservoirs will dry up.
Maybe that’s how you’re feeling. Or you know someone who feels this way. Sometimes we just need some inspiration and motivation for practicing self-care, treating ourselves with compassion and love first.
Here are 40 devotionals and journal prompts on the topic of self-care and self-love, offering you consistent encouragement and tips on how to say goodbye to codependency characteristics. And get good at putting yourself first in a healthy, balanced way.
No more putting your needs last, sacrificing your happiness to try to make others happy. No more crumbs. No more looking toward others to make you feel happy, stuffing your feelings to avoid conflict, feeling guilt, shame, or fear of being wrong.
We are worthy to live a healthy, happy life, restored and filled up.
Allow each of these devotions to lead you to more self-care, and a happier, more peaceful life. Let the journal prompts assist you in getting in touch with what’s going on under the surface. Then, look back and see the progress you’ve made.
Note that in this journal, I refer to some Christian scriptures, as well as tools like mindfulness and meditation. I use it all to encourage you from a space of love.
Keep doing your inner healing work, dear one.
You are healing, growing, and rediscovering your sacredness all along the way.
