Why Self-love Deficit Disorder is the New Codependence and Other Supports for Relationships After Trauma
In this episode, Sarah introduces a new "disorder" experts are getting behind and spearheading a movement to include in the DSM. Self-love Deficit Disorder shows up when we ignore our own needs to fill other people's needs. SLDD also looks like a struggle to understand what your emotions are and express them to others. These are also the qualities attributed to codependence, however, listen and learn why the term "codependence" might be outdated. We can all gain from more self-love but how do we support ourselves to be more self-accepting and prioritize our own needs? Listen and learn how you can be more mindful of how your past has set you up to ignore your needs and how you can heal and change.
