I don’t know about you, but if you’re like me and even ONE person you love is suffering, it takes away from your sense of joy. This is NOT codependency. This is HUMAN. One of the reasons I’m so committed to breaking down and sharing these heavy deep topics of codependency/ CPTSD/ CPTSR is because they are heal-able: but only IF we stop stigmatizing feelings such as loneliness, depression, sadness, shame and even JOY! (Rejection of such feelings leads to self-abandonment and perpetuates suffering and isolation).
The healing process is a matter re-educating ourselves to be as we were as children – with no judgment (innocence) about all of our feelings, and even our poo for that matter. To take the cap off of our true experience and let ourselves freely breathe.
Once we can do this WITH AND FOR OURSELVES (co-dependents, therapists, healers: pay attention!! “with and for ourselves”), then we will naturally, easily, kindly and generously offer a deeper sense of acceptance and safety to others. Then, we will have more to give from our vastly increased treasure house. Healing happens naturally as a result. My hope is that these TEA TIME videos will help the quickening process. Timely education can lighten the load for ourselves and those we love – and even save lives.
Thank you for being with me on this journey. Here’s a video update, a recap of the TEA TIME project.

Debbie Happy Cohen is a master coach, and the founder of Joy-Based Living, an online global conversation where people develop the skills to create (internal and external) environments so that JOY can thrive in their lives.
Many people who are committed to having joy in their lives are people who have known its exact opposite. Therefore, we explore many aspects of joy, including its shadows. Awareness, acceptance and action are keys to opening the doors to greater joy; and courage is strengthened when people experience connection.
The Joy-Based Living E-book offers a foundation of 12 lifelong practices that can help you get in touch with your feelings, make a deeper commitment to yourself, and step up into becoming who you really are. It’s a great supplement any holistic practice, including therapy and coaching. https://joybasedliving.com/ebook/
