The term Codependent gets way overused, often shaming people for it. The TRUTH is most of us as some point in our lives exhibited codependent behaviors. AND THATS OK. The pain and suffering that comes with codependency, propels many of us (me included) in action and behavior change.
Truly society, marketing campaigns, movies, and romance novels all fuck with our brains. That awful line “you complete me,” or “I’m so much better with you than alone.” ??????I bought into that BS too. It’s not healthy and takes us further away from ourselves and self-worth.
No job, no person, no place, no thing completes us or makes us better or happier. It’s a temporary illusion, that keeps the codependency cycle going. I’ll be sharing more on this subject in my IG Stories today.
