Co-Dependency is NOT Love!

“When you have to choose between a relationship and you, always choose you?” Natalie Lue

Codependent-relationships-with-an-addict-or-alcoholic1You give too much. You are the caregivers & rescuers. You feel compelled to help and solve the problems of others. You put up with way too much and receive way too little in return. You are nurturers and you become obsessed with the person in your life and you forget about yourself. You are the one who takes on other people’s baggage, anxiety, guilt, pain, anger and make it your own, spending all of your energy on others and only others. This is “Co-Dependency”!

انت تختار

عندما تفقد بريق حضورك عند شخص أحببته، أمامك خيارين لا ثالث لهما، إما أن ترحل بعيداً عنه دون عتاب؛ أو أن تبقى معه مكسوراً – الهاء

A Friday Ramble

When in the midst of all our fears and insanity we stop and somewhere, the voice inside your head cries out – ENOUGH!  Enough fighting and crying, or struggling to hold on. The awakening comes  after a blind tantrum, when our sobs begin to subside, we blink back our tears and through a mantle of wet lashes, we begin to look at the world through new eyes.

بين زحمة الشوارع و زحمة المشاعر


بين زحمة الشوارع و زحمة المشاعر ضيعت انا نفسي .. هل جرّبت في مره ان تعتذر لنفسك؟!

ساعات بين زحمة الناس و الحكي و المشاعر تضيع نفسك، تهملها و تهجرها عشان تطلب رضا فلان وقرب علان و حب هذا و اهتمام ذاك .. ترى باجر هذا اللي شبع بيرحل وذاك اللي مل قربك بيدور بديل و فلان لمصلحته بيقرب و علان عشان غيرك بينكرك و ذاك لحظة حاجتك و انكسارك بيذلك و بعدها بتقعد وحيد و تقول ويني؟!

وقتها بتكون للاسف ضيعت نفسك و بديت تفقدها .. ترى لنفسك عليك حق لا تخسرها و تضيعها عشان احد لان بالنهاية ما بيبقى لك الا نفسك. خصص وقت لنفسك كل يوم، فرحها واسمعها وفاجئها .. حب نفسك لا تفقدها و تضيعها لأن العمر اللي يروح ما يرجع

.. “أطلق سرك واغلق خلفك الأبواب
