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 366 readings, 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.

I love the daily readings on healing from codependency. The app sometimes doesn't give the daily reminder that I set and won't start sending them again until I remember to open the app again. That makes for 4 stars because I don't like it when I forget and miss a day or a few days. Other than that small bug, it works well. I also like that I can share readings with friends.

Love the book, but I wish they would either fix or remove the share feature, because it is frustrating. It allows you to share maybe once, maybe twice, then you get weird error messages that make you think something is wrong with your phone. There is nothing wrong with your phone, they apparently just don't want you to share, so why not just remove this feature? I guess the app designer feels one way or two shares might generate a sale, but more might inhibit sales.

Thank you for your feedback! This app allows unlimited sharing of the daily readings. It would be helpful to have more information, can you send screenshots related to the issue along with your device details to firstname.lastname@example.org? Thanks.

I love this app, but it always quits before I finish the reading. When I reopen, it usually stays open. The content is fantastic. I love having the book on my phone and being able to set a time for the days' message. I may just need to make some room for it to run smoothly. Overall, great app!
