Making Mistakes.


   aww We have the right to be wrong. aww

As co-dependents we are often bamboozled by dependents who expect perfection a fair bit.

But in their overall life-style, that may not have made it at all. Not for themselves. hmm


One of the classic images of us- as a co-dependent- is being locked together with a narcissist. 

In a doomed, sometimes fatal downward spiral, which seems difficult, if not possible to escape.

This is not theory for me. I believe that I have been there.

I tended to use Alanon tools especially to defend myself. The image I use is that i should pull the rip-cord on my own parachute first- before trying to catch someone else falling. 

I used my ACA tools to relocate my sense of self in the world. I actually believe  that I was able to break down the walls of a narcissist- and to be able to actually see the real person within.

I got into deep sh** with a group- because, at the age of 70 I take no meds at all.

Response being- you can't have been sick in the form place!

JADE, That's my business.

I ask myself why I am in this forum, and on this self-help journey.

I have no hesitation, nor do I have to claim any right to be here.

I am a survivor. He tangata morehu. 


The weather has been warm here. early spring. Early fruit blossom is showing.

Along with chronic pain [which is gradually lifting] I also suffer from chronic cold sensations.

So warm and cold are relative for me. Just as pain and healing is.
