WHAT IS CODEPENDENCY?

“Codependence is the pain in adulthood that comes from being wounded in childhood, which leads to a high probability of relationship problems and addictive disorders in later life.” —The Bridge to Recovery

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU’RE IN A CODEPENDENT RELATIONSHIP?

-Are you stuck in a relationship pattern that leaves you feeling helpless and confused as to whether to leave or stay in a relationship?

-Are you staying in a relationship out of guilt or fear of being alone even though you are unhappy and unsatisfied?

-Are you having difficulty letting go of a partner and obsessing over a relationship that has ended?

It can feel painful and isolating to be caught in a relationship that isn’t working.

You may feel overwhelmed with mixed emotions for your partner. Your gut may tell you that this person isn’t the right fit for you, but you struggle with the fear that you might not find someone else or that you don’t deserve better.

Maybe you also believe that if you can just love your partner enough, they will change.

Perhaps you’ve come to the point where you feel like you’ve tried everything–from asking your partner to get help with an addiction or other life threatening illness to making threats to leave.

To make matters worse, your family and friends may be offering frustrating, unsolicited and conflicting advice about whether you should break it off or try to make it work.

With all the internal and external noise, you might be struggling to identify what you really want. This kind of relationship guidance is not the kind of help you need.

HOW MANY CHANCES DO YOU NEED TO GIVE YOUR RELATIONSHIP BEFORE YOU KNOW IT'S OVER?

Many individuals struggle with making a final decision to leave or remain in a relationship.

Some people feel stuck or trapped in a relationship where their needs are consistently unmet, despite pleading and begging their partners to work with them on the problems they are having as a couple. Other individuals are not sure when enough is enough.

Good communication in a relationship is essential to a healthy, functioning partnership. You don’t have to feel stuck in confusion about your relationship anymore.

With the guidance and support of a professional who is trained to understand the dynamics of codependent relationships, you can learn to identify the relationship you want to have.
