Do you keep quiet to avoid arguments? Do you feel rejected when your significant other spends time with friends? Do you have difficulty taking compliments or gifts? Do you ever feel inadequate?

If you can identify yourself with any of these symptoms then you most likely have co-pendency.

Co-pendency is a psychological reliance on a partner, particularly a partner who requires support from an illness.

It can affect a spouse, a parent, sibling, friend, or co-worker of a person.

Some signs of this may be:

  • A tendency to confuse love and pity, with the tendency to “love” people they can pity and rescue
  • Chronic anger
  • Dishonesty/ Lying
  • Extreme need for approval and recognition
  • Problems identifying feelings
  • Poor communication
  • Dependent on relationships- The co-dependent will do anything to hold on to a relationship; to avoid the feeling of abandonment

The majority of relationships are reflected on co-dependency. It’s natural for people to get attached to someone they feel so close to. However, it’s important that couples recognize the symptoms of codependency because if you let it get to severe things can take a turn for the worst.

    Oh my gosh! I am so cute in this picture! I do it with ease too (being that cute) but people don’t realize the struggles that come along with it. I love to be in the mirror but almost inevitably face jealous people hating on me. My most challenging struggle is far more serious, embarrassing and awkward though. I unwillingly attract both genders with an unfortunate majority. Yes it’s true and i often find myself upset and miserable at the fact. It’s Just an unbearably annoying thing to deal with but at the end of the day i still wouldn’t rather being ugly. Did i mention my love of pie and how its the epitome of my everlasting exuberance?
