What is CoDependency?

CoDependency is....

Codependency is a set of behaviors that are not conducive to the self-esteem, value, respect, and appreciation of the one exemplifying such behaviors, but rather demoralizes that individual. Therefore, those who suffer from codependency and are involved with narcissists are not in relationships that will build them up, but rather tear them down emotionally.   

Symptoms of Codependency


1.) You are in relationship with a psychologically   
     damaged person.

2.) You are an enabler and do not encourage   
      independence of the Narc, but feel obligated to do  
      everything for them.

3.) You do not set boundaries for the Narc, but give in to
      them whenever they throw temper tantrums.

4.) You feel as if your Narc’s happiness and well-being is
      totally your responsibility with no personal  
      contribution and input of the Narc.

5.) Your Narc’s issues are always at the core of your
      being.

6.) You have not set boundaries for your Narc, but
      allowed them to emotionally, physically, spiritually,  
      and/or verbally abuse you.

7.) The Narc’s emotional behavior sets the tone for your
      day.

8.) You feel devalued and disrespected by the Narc.


9.) Your Narc’s needs take priority over yours in an
      unhealthy manner, while constantly trying to please
      them.

10.) Your emotions and feelings are squandered by those
       of the Narc and you often have suppressed feelings
       of  resentment, anger, depression, or felt the need to
       escape the company of the Narc through work,
       school, church and/or some other activity.

11.) You are not able to have a life apart that of the Narc
        and will cancel plans with others if the Narc
        expresses discontent even if you rarely make plans.

12.) You feel that you must maintain the relationship with
        the Narc regardless of their abuse at all costs.
