Codependent Relationships and the Power of Boundaries with Joanna Kucherera-Maposa
What is a codependent relationship? Codependency is essentially an underlying agreement that two people have in a destructive relationship. A relationship imbalance occurs where one person enables another person's addiction, poor mental health, immaturity, irresponsibility, under-achievement etc. A core characteristic of codependency is an excessive reliance on other people for approval and a sense of identity. Codependency is often an undetected dynamic at play in many relationships and yet the results of it can be debilitating to both parties involved; leading to a lack of trust, weak boundaries, suppressed anger and controlling behaviour to name a few. How can you tell if you are in a codependent relationship? What role do boundaries play? We tackle these questions and more to help you identify it, and; offer useful information to help you overcome it.
