S5. Episode 4: Maintaining Independence with Lindsay Andrews

Tune in for an insightful conversation with codependency expert and educator, Lindsay Andrews. We chat all things codependency – from how to recognize it, how to break the cycle, and how to set boundaries moving forward. Hear as we all pipe in, particularly Lindsay, about the myth of the “you complete me” and “you’re my other half” sayings, especially in light of codependency. Tracy questions whether her investment in relationships is actually overinvestment, while Corey asks Lindsay if, in an effort to avoid codependency, couples can be too independent. And, back by popular demand, a conversation about the “ugly baby doll,” sparked by Tracy, leads to a lively discussion for everyone.
