Recognize and Stop Overfunctioning
Codependency is a learned behavior from childhood. If our parents were emotionally unavailable or had a problem with boundaries, we most likely learned these behaviors and brought them into our adult lives.
People who are codependent say ‘Yes’ when they really want to say ‘No” as self-protection from facing painful consequences that can result when someone is angry or disappointed with you for not letting them have their way.
Many codependents find a sense of purpose from making extreme sacrifices to satisfy other people’s needs.
This behavior can result in feelings of resentment and emptiness.
However, resolving codependency can decrease depression, anxiety, and improve self-esteem.
