have difficulty making decisions,
judge their thoughts, words and actions harshly, as never being good enough,
are embarrassed to receive recognition, praise or gifts,
are unable to ask others to meet their needs or wants,
value other people's approval of their thoughts, feelings and behaviors over self-approval.
Also taken from the CoDA big book, page 4.
