“How was I to know that healthy love includes generous amounts of positive feedback?” In previous posts (Rehab for codependency (Part 1 and 2), and 2 main lies codependents tell themselves), I mention two types of boundaries: 1. stop the negative. 2. build the positive.

To create a space, an environment, where love is free to BE. … More Mothers Day – Connection, Perfection and Freedom to Love
