How to set healthy boundaries and have healthy relationships You’ve heard plenty about getting hooked on drugs or alcohol or sitting at slot machines from sunup to sundown, but can you really become addicted to a person? The answer is yes—codependency is a relationship addiction. A codependent is anyone who is dependent on another person to the point of being controlled or manipulated by that person. Learn how to set healthy boundaries, and how to be released from relationship addiction by renewing your commitment to Christ first.
June Hunt starts this minibook with stories of biblical people who ultimately compromised their relationship with God by being overly dependent on others, getting trapped in a codependent relationship.
Codependency will shed light on the spiritual implications of relationships that take precedence over your relationship with the Lord. Helpful checklists like “the codependent relationship profile” will help you determine whether or not you are in a codependent relationship. Also learn what the five stages of childhood development are, and how you can keep your children from having an unhealthy dependence on you.
Look for more titles in the Hope for the Heart series. These mini-books are for people who seek freedom from codependency, anger, conflict, verbal and emotional abuse, depression, or other problems.
