CODEPENDENCY: WHAT IS IT?
Codependency has been defined in many ways. However, put simply, codependency is a “relationship addiction.” It is sacrificing one’s own needs and wants, to fulfill the needs and the wants of others. Codependent relationships are very one-sided and bear traits that stem from unhealed trauma wounds, often from childhood.
