Causes of Unhealthy Relationship Patterns for Codependents with Narcissists and Borderlines, Part 1 [Video]

Do you keep choosing the same kinds of relationship partners that initially seem like a dream come true, only to have it result in the same disillusioned heartbreak? Or devolve into yet another one-sided relationship with a self-absorbed, irrational child in the body of an adult?

Perhaps you’ve had opportunities to have relationships with healthier women and men, but freeze up and retreat behind walls you’ve created to protect yourself, but have become a self-imposed prison. If you’d like things to finally change for the better, it’s time to examine your beliefs about yourself, others and relationships. Odds are, that’s what you’ve been tripping over since adolescence.

    Ive been clean and sober 37 years since i was 21. Ive attended AA and NA regularly, have been in therapy at various times for various lengths of time. Ive been in inpatient programs for relapse prevention and codependency. I was even at an inpatient program in Largo Florida at Suncoast Hospital run by Mary Lee Zawadski and Dr. Leslie Brewer for ACOA or Adult Children of Alcoholics. Ive studied and read the Work of John Bradshaw and road the Mens Movement bus in the 90’s driven by men Robert Blye and Joseph Campbell and so many others. However, the one area of my life that i have been unable to experience a significant permanent change has been in sustaining intimate, personal romantic relationships. I have 2 failed marriages and many broken relationships behind me, success in this department has evaded me and left me to conclude that i am simply not designed for it.
    Its easier to recover from a failed relationship at 25 then a failed marriage at 48, you just dont bounce back as easy or as fast. My last divorce lead to a heart attack, depression, homelessness, unemployment and shattered confidence and self esteem….
