I invite you to take a moment to think about your relationships…

Does this sound like you?

*You go above and beyond to be helpful and support others, often sacrificing your own needs. 

* You tell people what they want or need to hear, regardless of how you really feel.

*Do you often feel emotionally burned out with “What about me?”

These clues are just a few ways we can be too nice, self-sacrificing, and involved in the lives of our friends, family, and partners. (Fellow Highly Sensitive Person HSPs — please take note!)

In fact, it has become a way of life. 

The result?

We get burned out, lose ourselves, and our identity as a whole, worthy person diminishes. And then we stress!

You might think codependency sounds like a scary mental condition or substance addiction. On the contrary! Codependency is a common yet sneaky pattern in more high-functioning relationships than you’d imagine.

You might even be in a codependent relationship and not even know it.

If you feel stress and think you could be in a codependent relationship, here are some hints:

  • You have low self-esteem with the constant stress of needing to be validated.
  • You fear abandonment above all else.
  • You feel selfish or guilty or say yes to your priorities and self-care.
  • You try to rescue and “fix” everyone, often to soothe your own discomfort with the situation.
  • You’re an excessive caretaker who neglects your own emotional and mental state.

Often challenging to detect, codependency is a widespread, hidden issue in many relationships that causes overwhelm. Without a strong belief in oneself, a sense of self-worth, and a knowledge of personal boundaries, feeling burned out quickly becomes a pattern of excessive need for security and approval to avoid conflict and possible rejection. Underlying this pattern is a need to manipulate and control the relationship to maintain the status quo. 

You might ask, “Doesn’t closeness and love go together?” 

Yes, but only if it’s balanced, mutual, and interdependent. Codependency is one-sided and unbalanced. And that subtle control to receive continuous love, acceptance, and loyalty can STRESS YOU OUT!

If this resonates with you…

I’ve developed a proprietary method to release these types of people-pleasing habits once and for all.

Are you ready to reclaim your power and

  • Overcome unworthiness 
  • Heal from an inability to express yourself authentically
  • Learn how to stop seeking external validation
  • Source love from within to reinvent your identity

….then, having a trusted expert to speak with could be your healthiest decision

Rescripting is a holistic technique developed after 30 years as a board-certified acupuncturist and now holistic life coach to help you get to the root cause of why you become addicted to losing yourself and giving to others.

Many of my Rescripting clients once followed this codependent cycle, but they overcame it with their sessions.

“Roberta is an amazing holistic life coach. She got to the root cause of my people-pleasing habits and was invaluable in helping me achieve deserved health and happiness.” EF. 

“I went from a nobody loves my attitude to being involved in new present relationships that are flourishing. I hold Roberta in my highest regard.” BT.

“I had a ton of overwhelm and felt pretty bad about myself, and Roberta was listening and caring. She formulated a game plan I could lean on. She truly cared about my success and was a support system. I could have never had this new mindset without her.” CB.


You can do this. WE can do this together.
