CO-DEPENDENCY

Codependency addiction is a one-sided affair. It’s a behavioural addiction that’s often emotionally destructive and abusive in nature.  It starts as a result of a family member or partner that’s particularly needy or attention-seeking.

THE CO-DEPENDENT PERSON

The co-dependent partner typically sacrifices their needs in favour of prioritizing the needy person (an addict or mentally ill person).

They have a poor sense of self and find it difficult to acknowledge and put their needs and feelings first. This pattern easily continues throughout their life and later relationships. Co-dependents are drawn to needy partners. They choose people who need rescuing, often from drug or alcohol addiction.

While they have good intentions, helping others also makes the co-dependent feel good. Unfortunately, this causes further problems because they enable the needy partner’s often dysfunctional behaviour.

Many co-dependents develop a martyr-like role, often experiencing deep-seated anger and resentment towards the person they’re trying to help. This desire to feel good and help progressively gets worse and more destructive.

Those struggling with codependency often turn to other addictive behaviours to deal with their anxiety and other uncomfortable feelings. Co-dependency causes havoc in families. Seemingly healthy relationships can split due to families attempting to intervene.
