Daily lessons and meditations on how to detach from other people's expectations and discover a life of balance and freedom. Do you ever feel like you give other people too much power over what you think and feel? Does how your mate or child or employer treat you make or break your day? Do you find yourself feeling immobilized by other people's expectations and demands? These are the classic indicators of codependence. And the only solution to codependence is detachment. This seeming paradox-embracing (bringing near you) detachment (separation)-holds the key to your inner peace and that of those around you. Through 200 meditations, Karen Casey teaches you how to let go of the illusion that you can control anyone or anything beyond yourself. You'll learn how to find your own balance point and how to get to it whenever you find yourself tempted to become enmeshed in other people's problems or to rescue them.
