If you find yourself questioning the
healthiness of your relationships and struggle to stand up for what you want,
you're not alone.
Codependent behaviors are some of the most
difficult relationship patterns to identify, yet it's rarely discussed and
often considered another form of "clinginess."
This definition ignores the feelings of guilt and shame that arise
from the best of intentions -- it does nothing to recognize that even the best
intentions can hurt.
As you put yourself on the line for the people
you love, it can be difficult to tell when the boundaries between you and them
have blurred to the point of toxicity.
After all, you're motivated by wanting the best for others, even if it means you have
to put aside your own values and opinions to do so.
However, when you come to rely on outside
factors for validation and a sense of identity, these "do good"
habits can do more harm than good.
You may suddenly feel obligated to stay in a constricting relationship that turns
you into a victim and limits your capacity for intimacy. It can feel as though
you have no one to turn to because everybody relies on you.
That doesn't mean your life has to stay that
Codependency may be running your life, but you
are the one in the driver's seat. In fact, you've already taken the first step
