Summary

At the beginning of the sixth century of the Christian era, the empire of Constantinople was beset with enemies and sinking to decay. The tide of barbarian invasion had lately overwhelmed one half of the ancient provinces of Rome, and these conquests, both by their effect and their example, threatened speedy downfall to the rest. The emperors became either hated from their reforms, or despised from their incapacity, and in either case their fate was the same. Frequent insurrections wasted the resources of the state, and deprived the government of all energy and enterprise; while the armies, turbulent and feeble, had thrown off the restraints of military discipline. It is the purpose of my narrative, to show how the genius of one man averted these dangers, and corrected these defects; how the tottering empire was upheld; how the successors of Augustus were enabled, for a time, to resume their former ascendancy, and to wrest from the hands of the barbarians their most important possessions...

    This is a 6-book bundle, consisting of these books: 
    Book 1: Co-dependent relationships can be quite the challenge. Many people are in one, even though they don’t realize it. It typically consists of a couple enabling each other or manipulating each other, and individuals who lack self-esteem. 
    Book 2: Are you co-dependent or just a caring person? 
      
    This question lies at the heart of the first chapter in this book. Other chapters include topics such as: narcissism in relationships, abuse, addiction to love, self-confidence, controlling behavior, the myth of getting what you want, broken promises, signs of co-dependency, trauma, and loving your partner more. 
    Book 3: In this guide, you will learn more about co-dependency. You will also discover the definition of counter-dependency, and all the effects that these two phenomena have on relationships. This way, you’ll be better prepared if you ever find yourself in such a relationship, whether that’s an intimate one or a business-related one. 
    Book 4: Jealousy can be real, and it can be annoying. I think everyone has experienced feelings of jealousy in their lives. It’s normal, but if it isn’t dealt with, it can cause more problems to occur. 
    Book 5: Most feelings of jealousy or envy are related to insecurities. They come deep from within a person’s fears, doubts, self-esteem, and other variables, sometimes grounded in childhood experiences. 
    Book 6: Most people have experienced simple manifestations of jealousy, but there are exceptional cases and disorders that must be mentioned. In this book, some of those brain functions that border on insanity will be discussed and explained.
