Co-Dependency: It Takes Two To Create This Dysfunctional Relationship Dynamic
Show Notes

On this week's episode, Jamie and Guy discuss the basics of codependency. Codependency in relationships refers to a dynamic where one person enables or supports negative behaviors in their partner, sacrificing their own well-being for the sake of the relationship. This can lead to a cycle of dysfunction where both partners become overly reliant on each other, leading to unhealthy codependent behaviors such as neglecting personal responsibilities, making decisions based on the needs of the relationship rather than individual needs, and a lack of personal boundaries. Ultimately, codependency can lead to feelings of resentment, low self-esteem, and a decreased ability to function in healthy relationships.
To learn more, take a listen to this episode and you can also refer to these books recommended by Jamie, Codependent No More, How to Stop Controlling Others and Start Caring for Yourself by Melody Beattie and How to Raise an Adult: Break Free of the Overparenting Trap and Prepare Your Kid for Success by Julie Lythcott-Haims
