The four agreements is great as I recal, and my best friend is reading it now and raves about it. The Celstine prophecy is a really fun juicy book of fiction, but that deals with addictions to people and equal relationships in a few chapters. It's smart yet entertaining and enlightening if you don't read too much into it.

Oh, and there's "Simple Abundance", which is just daily thoughts to ponder while you build yourself into YOU again if you feel you have lost that. You just read the page and try to keep the thought with you, all things about seeing yourself and enjoying who you truly are inside and what you have to offer this world just in yourself.

I'm sure you can't tell by the spelling that I can actually read, but I can and I've read these, and they are good from different angles...soem days you just aren't up to a heavy read to totally deconstruct yourself, and other days it's great to just tear down those walls and get to work...there's a book for all sorts of days! Good luck!

Return to Love by Marianne Williamson...the best book I have ever read. Read it front to back last night and I tell you it gave me such a different outlook on life and love in our daily relationships with those that we love and work with.

Great for those who are seeking spirituality in themselves and need to learn how to surrender to the HP.

Books on depression:

Happiness is a Choice, author ?

Healing for the Hurting Heart by June Hunt

Joyce Meyer has several good books on depression.. Why, God, Why?...
Why People Don't Like Themselves... Why Do Things Happen The Way They Happen.

The Dance of Anger, author ?

Hi friend,

I did a tally on all of the books that I have bought since the end of the relationship four months ago, I think I counted sixteen. That's about $165.00 worth of books.

"Codependent No More" is in the mix--and I have highlighted it to death.

A friend recently loaned me the book "The Power of Intention" by Dr. Wayne Dyer. It is one of the better books on living a wonderful life that I have ever read. Don't let the title confuse or intimidate you--it is just incredible. It is teaching me a new joy-filled way of life.

Rasputin from this site recommended "Finding Peace for Your Heart" by Stormie Omartian. It's Christian based and that too was pivotal in my recovery process.

I love books. I read something every night. I hope this helps, friend. 2b

I just recently bought the book
"You can choose to be happy"
-rise above anxiety, anger, and depression"..by Tom G. Stevens PhD
So far it's GREAT-but I'm reading my "beyond codependency" book first. I just finished the first one-AGAIN..

I'm re-reading a couple of books that helped me get through depression and am finding myself learning about myself in whole new areas. I should have re-read them every 3 or 4 years. Doh!

Contagious Emotions: Staying Well When Your Loved One is Depressed by Dr. Ronald Podell. Wonderful book. Life-changing for me. Depersonalizes the illness on both sides; that of us codeps and the loved one we are so desperate to "help", making it that much easier to address. Key term: fusion. We have to "defuse" from our partner's illness. (Interesting note: I was the depressed one when I first read this. It helped me understand why everyone who tried to help drove me crazy!)

How to Raise Your Self-Esteem by Nathaniel Branden. I just finished the third chapter and already feel a boost. Basically, if you don't build yourself up, you don't have anything real to give. Think about it. What we codeps really do by trying to "give, give, give" is fill ourselves up with some sense of worth that depends on the other.

I gained some great skills when I read these years ago, but it's amazing how much you forget, especially when life throws you some curve balls.

A great book I have read over and over again is The Art of Happiness by The Dalai Lama.... its not about co dep or depression, but its a good read, as well as his other books.

And I have recently discovered an author that I really enjoyed, Elizabeth Berg... she writes books from a woman's perspective. They are short novels you can read in a day or two, but they have made me feel like I am not alone in my feelings. Some of the titles are Until the Real thing Comes Along and Pull of the Moon. Good books if you dont feel like reading something real heavy.
