Blog networking is one of the most undervalued and underused strategies for most.  But I believe it is at the core for growing a blog.

HSPs and codependency.

Lucky Otters Haven

There’s a lot of discussion on the web about codependency as well as empathy, especially in the narcissistic abuse community. While it’s true people who are codependent to a narcissist also tend to be high in empathy and very sensitive, there seems to be a lot of confusion–people who aren’t too familiar with either term tend to believe empathic people are also always codependent. While codependent people are almost always highly sensitive (which is the quality that attracts their abuser to them and keeps them trapped in a toxic relationship because they believe they can “fix” their narcissist), the reverse is not always the case.

A healthy HSP (highly sensitive person) is simply an emotionally healthy person. They are confident and secure enough with themselves that they can resist the “charms” of an abuser. If a healthy person with high empathy does find themselves being drawn into an abusive relationship…

Diary of a Recovering Codependent

I’m heading out for a little adventure to the city of Las Vegas this week. One of my uncles is celebrating his 90th birthday and his son is throwing him a huge party at the Main Street Social Club.I originally RSVP’d to my cousin that I was coming but then at the beginning of the month, finances were not looking so good so I had to tell him I wasn’t going to make it. I didn’t call to tell my mom until this past week though. (She lives in Vegas.) When I told her I wasn’t coming she told me that I had to; that my aunties were excited to see me, especially my Auntie Ayame (she’s the one that told me I was too fat). I explained that I just couldn’t afford to fly and that the 12 hour drive would be just too hard on me…
