Codependency Discussion with Teresa Purdie

Codependency Discussion with Teresa Purdie

On Wednesday, June 5 at 7 p.m. in the Mackay Room, Teresa Purdie will discuss the growing problem of codependency.

Healthy relationships are typically characterized by two people coming together to impart experiences, support, and love. Codependent relationships, whether with a dysfunctional family member, friend, spouse or  co-worker, tends to lead to emotional imbalances, a buildup of resentment, and a loss of your sense of self.

With codependent relationships, either one or both partners are not fully independent (being needy or having a need to be needed). Their emotional state depends on that of their partner, and they’re likely to give up or ignore their own needs. 

Trying to be what people want you to be, rather than being your true authentic self.  Recognizing the signs of codependency is often the first step toward taking action to find a better balance.
