I know codependency. I recognise when I see it.
I was raised in a home where there was no separation of emotion. When my mother felt an emotion, I felt it. Anxiety, rage and sadness flooded the house.
There were no boundaries.
I created this so you can start to understand codependency. As children we need to have our physical, emotional and spiritual needs met. When these aren’t met, you learn that the only way is to seek these to be met through other people.
And you will continue this same pattern of self betrayal in adult relationships.
You CAN unlearn these patterns. You can heal and create authentic relationships where you are connected to yourself and others.
Humans were made to connect (and heal) through relationships, but not at the expense of self.
