Melody Beattie is the bestselling author of Codependent No More (which she originally published in 1986 and updated in 2022). "I believe codependents are anyone who consistently love other people more—or to the detriment of loving themselves," says Beattie. "It's hard for codependents to consider their own needs as being valid, especially in the face of other people's needs." Beattie joins Erica Chidi today to explore the roots of codependency, how she first came to understand this term while working as an addiction counselor, and ways to manage codependent triggers.
