Spring cleaning: Understanding codependency

We often throw the words codependent or codependency around, not truly understanding what it means. Honestly, I’m a recovering codependent. I never knew that codependence is considered to be a disease like that of an addiction. ⁣

How 3 of our main institutions (churches, families, and schools) actively teach us to not form boundaries, to stay in addictive, suffering, possessive, clingy relationships. ⁣
Or normalizing duality and fused identities vs coming together as individuals. This book is awesome and teaching me new things! ⁣⁣
