Codependent No More
by Melody Beattie
The term "codependency" came about with the release of this book in 1986. Originally intended as a book for family members of addicts, I believe the themes ring true for an even broader audience. The book describes the tension between taking care of others and taking care of yourself- and how important self-understanding and self-care are when it comes to healing and growth.
If the Buddha Dated & If the Buddha Married
by Charlotte Kasl
Kasl's collection of short & simple books approach relationships as opportunities for awakening. By taking advice from wisdom traditions, she encourages readers to connect via honesty, kindness, & awareness. I love recommending these books clients who are stuck in relational ruts and overwhelmed by the complexity of these relationships.
