“You are not required to set yourself on fire to keep other people warm.”
Have you noticed any patterns where you have repeatedly been in codependent relationships?
We’ve been calling February the month of love, which makes it the perfect time to take an inventory of your relationships. Take this opportunity to reflect on your past and current relationships and see if you notice any codependent patterns.
In this episode of The Elevated Life podcast, we’re sharing “Healing from Codependency in Relationships” so that you can overcome, heal, and put yourself first again. If you are an empath who has ever been in a codependent or narcissistic relationship, then this is the episode for you!
Tune in to hear:
✨ How you can heal and overcome a codependent relationship
✨ The steps you can take to set yourself up for a healthy relationship
✨ What happens that causes relationships to become codependent
✨ How to recognize if you are in a codependent relationship pattern
How to Heal and Overcome Codependent Relationships
Stop Trying to Fix Everyone
The first thing you do is stop trying to fix everyone. A lot of times, it’s not your job. If you’ve been codependent and you’ve only been looking at your life in terms of what you need to do for somebody else, you’ve forgotten the awareness about yourself. It’s been too long since you’ve practiced self-care and asked yourself what you really need inside.
Start Taking Care of Yourself
Our second tip is to start taking care of yourself. Once you stop fixing everyone else, you have time to invest in yourself and ask what you need right now. The big secret here is to be selfish. If you give and give to others, what ends up happening is that you fall short on yourself. And without you, the whole thing doesn’t work. Be selfish for a while and look at your own needs.
Discover Your Purpose and Who You Are
The last thing we want you to do is to start to question your purpose and who you are. If you have a history of codependent relationships, you most likely live your life for somebody else. It’s time for you to pause and decide who you are going to be. Ask yourself: What am I going to stand for? What matches who I am today instead of who I was in the past?

THE ELEVATED LIFE CLUB:
Do you consider yourself to be a highly sensitive person?
Are you someone who feels everything (especially the emotions and feelings of others)?
It’s a gift, not a curse.
Empaths are some of the most compassionate people. They are the first to lend a hand, be someone to lean on, and help someone in need. They’re our nurses, teachers, and caregivers.
But they also get taken advantage of, preyed upon, and used by people abusing their good nature.
To succeed as a healer, you have to be a BADASS.
It’s not enough to just sit back and take everything the world throws your way. You’ll burn out and eventually resent the work you were put here to do.
That’s why we’re so excited to arm you with our strategies for reclaiming your power, standing up for yourself, and taking charge of your mental and emotional health in the Badass Empath Masterclass! 🚀
