What is codependency?
Codependency is a dysfunctional relational pattern in which one person relies excessively on another to meet their emotional and psychological needs, often sacrificing their own well-being in the process. This behaviour can occur in various types of relationships, such as romantic partnerships, friendships, or family dynamics. Codependent individuals often have low self-esteem, a strong desire for approval, and a fear of abandonment, leading them to prioritise the needs of others over their own.
Some common characteristics of codependency include:
- Excessive care-taking: Codependent individuals may feel responsible for the well-being of others and put their needs above their own, often to the point of enabling unhealthy behaviours.
- Poor boundaries: Difficulty setting and maintaining personal boundaries can result in the codependent person becoming overly involved in the other person's life, emotions, or problems.
- Emotional reactivity: Codependent individuals may have intense emotional reactions to the feelings or actions of others, often feeling responsible for their happiness or unhappiness.
- Dependency: A codependent person may have an intense fear of abandonment or rejection, leading them to cling to relationships, even if they are toxic or harmful.
- People-pleasing: Codependent individuals often go to great lengths to gain approval or avoid disapproval, even if it means sacrificing their own well-being.
- Low self-esteem: Codependent people may struggle with feelings of inadequacy, unworthiness, or guilt, and rely on others for validation and self-worth.
- Control issues: A desire to maintain control over situations or relationships can manifest as manipulative or controlling behaviours in a codependent person.
Codependency often stems from childhood experiences or past traumas, where emotional needs may not have been adequately met.
