The Language of Letting Go

Melody Beattie


January 1
The New Year


Make New Year''s goals. Dig within, and discover what you would like to have happen in your life this year. This helps you do your part. It is an affirmation that you''re interested in fully living life in the year to come.

Goals give us direction. They put a powerful force into play on a universal, conscious, and subconscious level.
Goals give our life direction.

What would you like to have happen in your life this year? What would you like to do, to accomplish? What good would you like to attract into your life? What particular areas of growth would you like to have happen to you? What blocks, or character defects, would you like to have removed?

What would you like to attain? Little things and big things? Where would you like to go? What would you like to have happen in friendship and love? What would you like to have happen in your family life?

Remember, we aren''t controlling others with our goals—we are trying to give direction to our life.
What problems would you like to see solved? What decisions would you like to make? What would you like to happen in your career?

What would you like to see happen inside and around you?

Write it down. Take a piece of paper, a few hours of your time, and write it all down—as an affirmation of you, your life, and your ability to choose. Then let it go.

Certainly, things happen that are out of our control. Sometimes, these events are pleasant surprises; sometimes, they are of another nature. But they are all part of the chapter that will be this year in our life and will lead us forward in the story.

The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals.

Today, I will remember that there is a powerful force motivated by writing down goals. I will do that now, for the year to come, and regularly as needed. I will do it not to control but to do my part in living my life.

January 2
Healthy Limits

Boundaries are vital to recovery. Having and setting healthy limits is connected to all phases of recovery: growing in self-esteem, dealing with feelings, and learning to really love and value ourselves.

Boundaries emerge from deep within. They are connected to letting go of guilt and shame, and to changing our beliefs about what we deserve. As our thinking about this becomes clearer, so will our boundaries.

Boundaries are also connected to a Higher Timing than our own. We''ll set a limit when we''re ready, and not a moment before. So will others.

There''s something magical about reaching that point of becoming ready to set a limit. We know we mean what we say; others take us seriously too. Things change, not because we''re controlling others, but because we''ve changed.

Today I will trust that I will learn, grow, and set the limits I need in my life at my own pace. This timing need only be right for me.

January 3
Nurturing Self-Care

. . . there isn''t a guidebook for setting boundaries. Each of us has our own guide inside ourselves. If we continue to work at recovery, our boundaries will develop. They will get healthy and sensitive. Our selves will tell us what we need to know, and we''ll love ourselves enough to listen.
Beyond Codependency


What do we need to do to take care of ourselves?

Listen to that voice inside. What makes you angry? What have you had enough of? What don''t you trust? What doesn''t feel right? What can''t you stand? What makes you uncomfortable? What do you want? Need? What don''t you want and need? What do you like? What would feel good?

In recovery, we learn that self-care leads us on the path to God''s will and plan for our life. Self-care never leads away from our highest good; it leads toward it.
Learn to nurture that voice inside. We can trust ourselves. We can take care of ourselves. We are wiser than we think. Our guide is within, ever-present. Listen to, trust, and nurture that guide.


Today, I will affirm that I am a gift to myself and the Universe. I will remember that nurturing self-care delivers that gift in its highest form.

Ugh please update to a religion free version. I would return it but I edited it myself. Very exclusive. I’m sad that the only literature out there on these topics are seem to be very Christian based. When I look at it, I see it’s bc they were written in the 80’s. If anyone knows about more recent, religion free, psychology books on codependency please suggest.
I don’t understand how a meditation book on codependency can freely suggest a replacement attachment figure? Isn’t the whole goal of recovering from codependency to attach to yourself? So why are you promoting attachment to a God? Seems counterproductive and I’m sad I spent money on this book. The Calm app is way better.

Writings are all about putting your faith in God that he will do a lot of the work and not taking full responsibility for your own healing. If you are not a devout Christian, then this book will not help you much. Almost every entry involves leaving some of the actions that need to be taken to God''s will. May not be for everyone.

I have recommended this book to most of my female clients over the past 15 years. It has been extremely helpful as a daily reminder around learning to and staying out of the business of others, allowing others to make choices and handle the consequences. Yes, it is written with the 12 Step Program in mind, but that doesn''t get in the way of the truth of each page. A reader doesn''t need to be involved in 12 Step to get the wonderful benefits.

A must read
Reviewed in the United States on January 7, 2017
This book is extremely helpful for anyone in a co-dependent relationship, or any situation where personal boundaries are difficult to maintain. It helped me enormously be reinforcing that I do have the right to draw boundaries, even with people I want to be close to.

Helpful for a variety of people not just individuals recovering from an addiction. I started reading this book to support a friend in recovery from alcohol . I realized the information is beneficial for so many others in our American society, especially those who have or are currently being ostracized, bullied , not following some of the superficial norms of society, those who have lost parents in their youth and/or not received basic guidelines in youth. There are chapters with " words of wisdom " many would fine beneficial as they navigate the world as we know it.

I have read this book twice so far and plan on reading it again in th future. This book is educational and the writer has excellent insight into the human mind. I recommend reading this book especially if you have trouble accepting reality and are aware of your problem. When I say reality, I mean,for example you keep getting upset and angry because a certain person keeps treating you a certain way- this book helps you to understand that you need to accept who that person is and stop trying to change it or fighting the facts-that person is who they are and you are who you are.

Growing up in a always emotional chaotic family with constant daily drama. I didn''t realize how bad it was until few years ago. It was hard to come around at this stage of my life.

This book is a great, daily reminder to be kind to ourselves. It helps direct thoughts into a positive direction and get perspective on things. You can look at the glossary and find key words for specific problems, or read daily or whenever you need a bit of support and guidance. It is a spiritual book, and even thought she sometimes speaks of God, it is at no point religious. It is ecumenical at the very least and interpreting this "god" as a higher power / the universe / destiny or whatever you feel is right and works fo you, is not difficult at all.

Absolutely brilliant of daily readings drawing on the insights from the author''s seminal book Codependent No More. Each day I read something life-changing. Somehow it always seems to be just what I need and speaks to where I am that day. I know I will use it again next year because there is such richness to these readings and more to draw out. Having this feels like having a wise and kind friend to keep me grounded in my truth despite what''s going on around me.
