Accepting Ourselves

“Codependents cannot change until we accept our codependent characteristics — our powerlessness over people, alcoholism, and other circumstances we have so desperately tried to control.  Acceptance is the ultimate paradox:  we cannot change who we are until we accept ourselves the way we are.”

— Melody Beattie, Codependent No More, p. 121
