Co-dependent Relationships

Having a healthy and loving relationship should be something we should look for in life. Having that one person that you trust more than anyone and can always count on for love and support. However, some people aren’t so lucky in that department.

Have you ever been in a relationship where you find yourself constantly making sacrifices for your partner while getting none in return? Have you been constantly putting their happiness and wellbeing over your own? If yes, then you have been are in a co-dependent relationship.

A co-dependent relationship is a relationship in which you find yourself dependent on the approval of your partner for your self esteem. These relationships are one-sided, with one person putting in more effort than the other, and emotionally destructive. If there is a problem in the relationship, you constantly blame yourself for it. 

Relying on another person to make yourself feel better is unhealthy, especially if that person is taking advantage of you. A relationship is supposed to be 50/50, a give and take not just give. It’s not fair to you if you keep putting their needs ahead of yours.

More than that, you need to know your own self worth. Like the saying goes, how can you expect someone else to love you if you don’t love yourself? You need to know who you are and what you deserve. If you think you deserve a dysfunctional, one-sided relationship then that is what you will get. If you think you deserve a healthy and loving relationship, that’s what you’ll get. As romantic as Twilight might have seemed at first, you don’t want to have a relationship like that.

Everyone one of us is special in our own way and deserve nothing but the best. So aim for nothing less. Don’t rely on someone else to make you feel good about yourself, you should feel good about yourself whether you are in a relationship or if you are single. Just be you. If you do that, you can avoid having a co-dependent relationship.
