 Are You In A Codependent Relationship?
Most people want to be in a relationship because being close to someone is part of our human nature. People are happy when they are in a fulfilled, balanced relationship, and are able to achieve much more in life this way, both personally and professionally. However, there are men and women who can’t stand being single and would enter any relationship just to feel safe and know they belong to someone. This approach is harmful – it means being a codependent relationship. Before being happy with someone, you need to be happy about yourself. So, are you one of those dependent people?
