Codependency is a pattern of behavior where individuals excessively rely on others for their self-worth, validation, and identity. It often involves a one-sided and unhealthy relationship dynamic, where one person becomes overly dependent on meeting the needs of another, often at the expense of their own well-being.

In codependent relationships, individuals may have difficulty setting boundaries, expressing their needs and desires, and caring for themselves. They may feel a deep sense of responsibility for the happiness and actions of others and may struggle with feelings of guilt, low self-esteem, and fear of rejection or abandonment.

Codependency can manifest in various forms, such as enabling behaviors, people-pleasing, excessive caretaking, and a lack of personal autonomy. It often occurs in relationships where there is addiction, chronic illness, or other dysfunctional dynamics.

It's important to recognize that codependency is not a healthy or sustainable way of relating to others. It can lead to emotional exhaustion, resentment, and a loss of personal identity. However, with awareness and support, individuals can break free from codependent patterns and establish healthier, more balanced relationships.

Therapy and support groups can play a vital role in addressing codependency. They provide a safe and non-judgmental space where individuals can explore the underlying causes of codependent behaviors, learn healthy relationship skills, develop self-care practices, and establish boundaries.
