Codependency is often hard to understand because relationships are so natural for most people. So where does one draw the line between healthy caring and codependency? Here are three indicators:
1) Trying to get someone to change - this can take considerable amounts of time and head space.
2) Being "fed up" with a partner, child friend or colleague and also feeling quite attached to them.
3) Not knowing what you want, but trying to provide everyone else with what they want and need.
It is easy to feel obsession with another person without really being that aware of its high price. If these symptoms register with you, feel free to call me at 415 282 2200 for a free, 15 minute consultation.
