You have a co-dependent relationship if:
- You feel uncomfortable in your relationship. You don’t get satisfaction from the relationship.
- You have to “earn” your partner’s love. You have to fulfill certain conditions in order to get his attention.
- You feel that you are more interested and invested in your relationship than your partner.
- Both you and your partner violate each other’s personal boundaries in the relationship.
- Your partner becomes your main project. You are totally focused on him and his activities.
- You have a strong belief that the source of all difficulties is in your partner.
- There is not enough openness and sincerity in your relationship.
- Your emotional state and mood are directly dependent on the emotional state and mood of your partner.
- In conflict, you find it difficult to sit down at the negotiating table.
- You constantly need to know where your partner is and what they are doing.
- It can be very difficult for you to accept that your partner may have plans and intentions that are different from yours.
- In a relationship, you want your partner to take responsibility for your safety, financial well-being and happiness. Alternatively, you yourself tend to take excessive responsibility for him.
- You often feel a sense of unexplained anxiety about the relationship.
- Your relationship clearly has two opposite phases – “everything is good” and “everything is bad”.
- The relationship negatively affects other areas of your life, work, career, communication with your children, and family and friends.
- You tolerate sex even if you don’t want it, so as not to hurt your partner or damage the relationship.
- The relationship is so consuming that sometimes you feel trapped with no way out.
- You are willing to sacrifice your interests, your pleasures, even your needs in order to maintain a “good relationship”.
- You don’t have a sense of being valuable in a relationship in your own right; you feel like you can only be valued for something.
