Break free from codependency

How do I know if I am codependent?

Codependency is not your fault and it is not who you are. We are codependent when we deny our own needs and emotions to please others or by fear of rejection or abandonment. Signs of codependency can include low self-esteem, people-pleasing, trouble managing emotions and communicating, and obsessive thinking. 

 

As human being we are all codependent at some degree. As long as we will live as our ego self more often then we live as our true self, we will adapt in some ways to fit in rather than expressing our true nature. Codependency mean that we forgot who we really are. We have the false belief that we are not loved, worthy or enough as we are so we often try to control, cling or settle for less than our desires. 

Age 0 to 7 are critical for us to develop healthy beliefs about the self and the world to become healthy adults. If we were raised to believe that our feelings were not significant we learned to live through other people's emotions, leading to codependency. Our subconscious got wired for safety and survival rater than love and connection. 

Fear is often at the basis of our decisions and we often numb ourselves by overindulging in food, alcohol, netflix, social media, shopping or other substances. We also distract ourselves from feeling our emotions by avoiding them. We need to get out of our story (ego) and see ourselves as the limitless being that we are. Let's do it together.
