It’s time to choose yourself over codependency!
For this post, I sat down with some alumni from my Spring 2021 Self Love Over Codependency course. They share their stories, steps they took toward self-love, and what life has been like since they decided to put themselves first.
Codependency takes reigns over our lives, but that doesn’t have to be the end of the story.
“It really helped me with my intuition,” says Ashley. She talks about how she always wanted to be a people pleaser, and Self Love Over Codependency helped her dive into that and explore the root of her issues.
Therapy in tandem with SLOC can lead to extremely successful results. Ashley highlights that having a community to help her process also helped relieve many fears and doubts that she had within. That support system lets you know that you are not alone in your struggles and emotions.
“I had a really hard time separating my own thoughts and feelings from other people’s,” Vanessa adds. She talks about how she was putting other people’s needs before her own, and wasn’t taking into consideration what she wanted out of a situation. Before SLOC she had poor boundaries and racing thoughts. SLOC provided her with a community that really understood her and helped her find her self-esteem. She now has the confidence to move out of her parent’s house and find a job that is higher paying.
“I was so consumed by the outside world and what other people thought,” Sheana says. Now, she’s more in touch with her body and feelings. She’s able to separate her thoughts from her identity and reflect on why she’s feeling a certain way.
“One of the things that really stuck out to me was the repetition and the mantras,” added Emily. She said that coming out of a bad relationship, SLOC helped her refocus and manage her triggers much better. The intentionality and practice of working through harmful thoughts helped her relieve a lot of stress.
Ashley points out that spending time with your community can help you reflect on your own thoughts and your own growth. She says that she’s able to reaffirm herself when bad things happen to her, and self soothe. Ashley is grateful for her ability to differentiate that she can’t control the whole world, only herself. SLOC helped her realize, however, that she is not alone in struggling with this separation.
“I wish that I did it (SLOC) a year before I did,” says Vanessa. She highlights that SLOC does a great job of explaining difficult concepts in-depth and with examples that everyone can relate to. While the course wasn’t always easy, hitting the occasional trigger points, it was more than worth it. SLOC accounts for the rollercoaster of healing and gives you tools to deal with the ups and downs of self-love.
Sheana adds that if you’re feeling alone in your thoughts, SLOC really resonates and can help you identify and vocalize how you’ve been feeling. She says she was feeling hesitant, but this program has helped her become more invested in her own well-being.
“That combination of having a curriculum and a community aspect helped me feel like I had an accountability partner,” Emily says. Because this program is centered around your own self love and growth instead of on the narcissist with who you’re in a codependent relationship with, you’re able to really heal and see past those toxic tendencies.
SLOC is a program that is dedicated to helping you discover your connection to codependency and learning tools to deal with your thoughts and emotions on your journey to self-love. The course not only has modules and personalization, but also a community of support with people who are going through the same struggles as you are.
