A-w-a-r-e-n-e-s-s Plan for Codependents
Action I must take to keep my self-respect.
Wisdom to know when things are out of my control.
Alert myself to the role I play in the family drama.
Remind myself to think, not react to the addict’s behaviors.
Envision how I should behave, and follow through.
No morenagging others—threats never works. It’s time to speak kindly to myself.
Enlighten my future with positive affirmations.
Share how codependent behavior restricts everyone’s freedom, including my own.
Set plans in place to change the things I can and pray for courage to carry them out.
This is God’s Word on the subject: “. . . I’ll show up and take care of you as I promised and bring you back home. I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for” (Jeremiah 19: 10-11 MSG).
