Recognizing the signs that you are being codependent in a relationship is a key way to either prevent yourself or escape from, that toxic relationship.
Codependent relationships make you lose yourself while you keep trying to become an ideal partner.
Codependency is the leftover, unhealed, unfinished wounds of our past, where we did not develop enough on the inside to feel safe, whole, and self-generative.
How love or unloved we feel as children deeply affect the formation of our self-esteem and self-acceptance. It shapes how we seek to love and whether we feel part of our lives or more like an outsider.
Codependency is grey, similar to narcissism.
No matter the type, all codependents believe that their narcissistic partner will realize their mistakes and finally give them the love they want and need. It just never happens.
When your head says you need to break up a relationship or you need to move on from that broken relationship but your heart is pulling you back and flooding you with guilt over it.
Codependency is a dynamic where one or both persons in the relationship feel an excessive and unhealthy responsibility for the other person’s life.
The codependency dance is described as the intimate relationship between two very broken, dysfunctional, opposing, but balanced people: the fixer and the people-pleaser.
