Daily meditations that provide healing insight with a lighthearted touch into the common struggles that codependents and those in Al-Anon frequently face. “By the time I’d gotten to Al-Anon… people responded with ‘Thank God,’ or ‘It’s about time.’ I wasn’t a horrible person. It’s not like I had buried bodies under my floorboards. I was just a little dramatic and a tiny bit controlling.” –Misti B.Most people in the throes of codependency’s problematic behaviors typically don’t see their plight as a laughing matter. And yet, judging by the peals of laughter often heard coming out of Twelve Step meeting rooms, many eventually do find the humor in their self-defeating thoughts and actions.If You Leave Me, Can I Come with You? is full of refreshingly original meditations for each day of the year. Infusing her wisdom with self-revealing honesty and humor, Misti B. provides healing insight with a lighthearted touch into the common struggles that codependents and those in Al-Anon frequently face. Issues such as people pleasing, lack of boundaries, and perfectionism don’t have to overwhelm us if we work a solid Twelve Step program and learn not to take ourselves so seriously. Misti B. shows how to do both, delivering the right mix of support, inspiration, and healthy irreverence.

Die Freunde und Angehörigen von Alkoholikern, Drogenabhängigen und anderen Süchtigen haben es oft schwerer als die Betroffenen selbst. Sie werden von den Problemen ihrer Partner erdrückt und fühlen sich meist nicht in der Lage, mit der veränderten Situation umzugehen.
Warum erreichen manche Menschen trotz aller Affirmationen und positiven Denkens oft nicht die gewünschten Resultate? Den besseren Job, mehr Geld auf dem Konto, eine glückliche Beziehung und natürlich eine stabile Gesundheit? Das fehlende Element in der Kette ist die sanfte, aber eindringliche Kraft der eigenen Gefühle. Gefühle sind die heimlichen Herrscher im Leben. Lynn Grabhorn verrät ihren Lesern, wie sie mit einem 30-Tage-Programm die Gefühle zum machtvollen Verbündeten machen.
