codependency

Do you ever find yourself in a pattern of rescuing or taking care of the emotional needs of others? Do you ever feel like it’s up to you to stop them from doing irresponsible or harmful things? Do you find yourself placing a lower priority on your own needs, while being preoccupied with the needs of others?

While this is an issue of boundaries, it’s actually a deeper issue of co-dependency between you and your spouse or friend. This type of relationship is not uncommon when one person struggles with an addiction, an unhealthy habit, or troubling behaviour that the other person tries to help them overcome. Often, one partner may have trouble controlling their impulses or addictions, or simply not show much interest in the partnership. Then the other partner — who is the codependent one — goes all-out to try to “fix” the problem. Continuing to step in to “help” your loved one is a classic pattern of codependency.

Take the time now to be honest with yourself if you find yourself in an unhealthy relationship with someone in your life.  Here are some questions to ask yourself:  Am I finding myself exhausted and frustrated after spending time with a friend, spouse or family member? Do I sometimes feel as if I am working harder than they are to deal with their problems? Am I finding myself stuck in a pattern of doing things for others that deep down, I know isn’t healthy? Do I secretly find my sense of worth and identity in what I do for others? If you answered yes to any of these questions, please watch the video below.  You CAN change.  Freedom is awaiting you!
