Written by codependency expert Melody Beattie, the Language of Letting Go provides daily guidance and encouragement for those who struggle with codependency. The app contains all 366 readings from the best-selling book, one for each day of the year, helping you on your journey of self-care and recovery to a path of freedom and a lifetime of healing, hope, and happiness.
Each daily reading focuses on a specific topic and ends with a related prayer or affirmation. Topics include: setting healthy boundaries, recognizing feelings, loving yourself, trusting your Higher Power, finding peace, and letting go of shame, guilt, sadness, anger, and worry. Also included are handy reference lists of the Twelve Steps of AA, the Twelve Traditions of AA, and the Twelve Steps of Al-Anon.
When the app is opened each day, it will automatically show you that day’s reading. Choose a time for a daily notification reminding you to read, reflect, and meditate on that day’s reading and on your recovery. Open the app anytime you need to refocus.
Codependency—the concept of losing oneself in the name of helping another—has rung true for millions around the globe, and can manifest for many reasons: a spouse, child, parent, or loved one addicted to alcohol or other drugs; a mentally or physically ill loved one; sexual addiction; abuse; or neglect. By integrating her own life experiences and fundamental recovery reflections, Melody Beattie helps readers take responsibility for their own pain and self-care as she encourages them to remember that each day is an opportunity for growth and renewal.

Keeping me on track....
I was given this book from my 1st Sponsor.. oh back in 1990 😆...I keep reading it because it keeps me balanced💞= Spiraling Up❗️I have made notations in my book all through the years....Seeing my progress and sometimes regression. And as stated by many others " Hearing just what I need for the day!" In moving around the country through these years... I've noticed some places don't appreciate the books from Melody. I find that very sad😥. I for one look to the meditations daily! ( at this point I could probably recite the words) Knowing what it means just for the day....yet I still consistently read it daily! Sometimes I forward sharing the meditation to friends, family & sponsees😉. I am truly Grateful for this book.... Thankyou Melody... I wouldn't be the person I am today without it❣️ Blessings of Happiness, Joy & Laughter, you have helped me attain those💞 Margie
As good today as it was when 1st published!
This book has been a life changer for me. I read it when it 1st came out and have given MANY copies away. I am reading again now as a refresher. I love the app version. I have it on my phone and it is convenient to have with me whenever I have the chance or need to read it. It helped me so much then in my 20s and continues to help me today, the person I am now at 50+. I often feel like Melodie is talking directly to me. I will continue to give this book for many years to come.
Return again and again
I had the original book in paperback for 10 years and now use the kindle version. Whenever I feel my codependency "buttons" being pushed I return to this book to help steady my walk and give me daily guidance in taking responsibility for my own life & maintaining appropriate boundaries with others. Highly recommended for its gentle yet direct language that speaks to the heart of those of us with codependent tendencies.
