The Language of Letting Go Melody Beattie, the bestselling author of " Codependent No More" and " Beyond Codependency ," has now created Hazelden's first meditation book for codependents. Here are reflections that nurture spiritual and emotional health, serenity, and recovery. Focusing on self-esteem and acceptance, and written in the direct, unsentimental style of Beattie's bestsellers, these daily meditations give voice to the thoughts and feelings common to men and women in recovery. They encourage fruitful reflection on problem-solving, self-awareness, sexuality, intimacy, detachment, attachment, acceptance, feelings, relationships, spirituality, and more. Offering hope and inspiration, tempered with the clear-eyed perspective of one who has been there and back, the author empowers readers to affirm who they are--their beliefs, thoughts, instincts, feelings--and, ultimately, their ability to change. These meditations are tools designed to help recovering codependents realize the goal Beattie defines as "stopping the pain and gaining control of your life"
An excellent book for anyone struggling with letting go of relationships, places or any other attachment.

I read this book everyday and because of that I am finding serenity and peace. I am very thankful for that book. If you feel that you have some issues you need to work on, things to confront and let go off, that is the book of daily meditations.

Powerful thoughts for letting go of codependency
I used this book daily for two years when I was initially working with my codependency challenges. Now I keep it near for reference as needed. I also keep a spare copy on hand to give to others who are struggling. It is full of encouragement and inspiration.
