Essentials: Reclaim Yourself From Enmeshment Through Connecting To Your Innate Sovereignty
Codependency externalizes our sense of authority, personhood, worth, and experience. It outsources these factors to people we feel connected to and dependent on for our sense of being real, being worthy, being lovable, and being "allowed".
In other words, the fawn response that drives codependent behaviors has us believing that others have an inherent authority to define our worth, who we are, and what we're permitted to be, do, or have in our personal lives.
This kind of enmeshment can show up in on specific areas for a person (like being lovable as a romantic partner), or it can be pervasive across the entire person's world (like it was for me - I thought others and their feelings and perspectives defined me, especially so if they were in a position of power or authority over me).
Personally, I was not raised to taught that I had any kind of sovereignty or innate autonomy over my life. Instead, I was taught to please authorities over me in order to garner worthiness, power, and permission to receive things that mattered to me.
I lived in terror, believing that my worth as a person was conditional, controlled by the pleasure of others, and that what I could have in my life was either allowed or denied by external authority.
My healing journey brought me to know that I have what I called, "Innate Sovereignty" or "Natural Authority".
Learn what that is in today's episode!
