Codependency
Play • 16 min

This week, John looks at codependency - a circular relationship in which one person needs the other person, who in turn, needs to be needed - how it manifests within relationships, and how we can identify this compulsion.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Codependency is typically discussed in the same terms as substance abuse. It is the reliance of one person upon the other in order to keep this addiction going.
  • Codependent people tend to form and become dependant upon unhealthy, emotionally harmful relationships.
  • This state may feel like an addiction, but it is in fact a compulsion. It is the coming together of two people with maladapted needs that need to be met.

BEST MOMENTS

'Two people become so invested in one another that they can't function independently'

'Your mood, happiness and identity are defined by another person'

'This is often referred to as a relationship addiction'
