INSPIRATION FOR ALL SEASONS
A Season to Shed Impediments
Codependency is defined by mental health professionals as –”An emotional and behavioral condition that affects an individual’s ability to have a healthy, mutually satisfying relationship. It is also known as “relationship addiction” because people with codependency often form or maintain relationships that are one-sided, emotionally destructive, and/or abusive.”
Parasites… they are an unmistakable reality of the ecology of our lives. A parasite is an organism that lives in or on another organism, its host, and benefits by deriving nutrients at that host’s expense. They present as insects, and plants, … and as persons.
There comes a time in our lives – a season if you will – when we must, in order to survive and maximize our potentials, rid ourselves of those influences that are in fact impediments in our journey to our best selves. To that end it becomes necessary to realistically evaluate the factors in and around us that impact our lives – and that our lives impact – with a view to detaching from them where they have proven to be detrimental to our own growth and the growth of others.
