How to Recover From Codependency
It is hard to watch someone that you care about having difficulty with loving themselves.
With love you need to establish the boundaries and show respect. There are some who are having a hard time establishing boundaries in their relationship because they happen to be in a relationship with an addict. Some of these people end up being co-dependents to the person that they love that they don’t have boundaries anymore from themselves. They end up sacrificing their needs and wants for this person. This makes the relationship that they engage in a one-sided one and thus not a good relationship. Such behavior is of course unhealthy and the codependent must seek out ways so he or she can recover from his or her codependency.
