Gratitude

My name is Maureen and I have been doing recovery work for 10 years. My childhood was filled with blessings and painful memories because my Dad suffered from Bi-polar. My mom was always trying care-take the emotions of six children + my dad. I am finally realizing that I have been on both sides of co-dependency. It's a difficult pattern to change because we gravitate to what is familiar. I read Melaney B's book CODEPENDENCY NO MORE ~ its a wonderful resource. I have more awareness now of signs of codendency, reactivity, resentments, choices and the eality that we can change ourselves (but we ae not responsible to change others). Over time I am learning to create boundaries that contribute to healthier relationships.


I am most grateful for my two lovely children. My daughter is 24, compassionate, dedicated to teaching, very creative and an inspiration to her students and me. My son is a 12 y/o 7th grader, kind, social, humerous, plays guitar ~ sings, with a joyful curiousity about life that's fosters mindfulness.
