What is Codependency?

It’s a sneaky disease hidden under the guise of care-taking and rescuing, and it robs women and men of their senses, their souls, and their deep truth. It comes from not being validated, or seen, or blessed as children. We do not develop a positive sense of self and we need and depend on others for our value and validation. That means we can’t have people mad at us, we don’t say no very often, if at all, and we get into obsessive thinking about how to control people and situations (we think we can control but we really can’t.)

Some Characteristics of Codependency are as follows:

  • Low Self-Esteem
  • Internalized Shame
  • People Pleasing
  • Guilt
  • Perfectionism
  • Defectiveness
  • Dysfunctional Boundaries
  • Needing Someone Too Much
  • Unable to Manage Feelings
  • Control and Care-taking
  • Chaos and Crisis
  • Unclean or Abusive Communication
