Understanding Codependency in Twin Flame Relationships
Codependency is the tendency to look for Love outside yourself in another person. Essentially, that person becomes “god” to a codependent.
There are many causes for codependency but at the root of it all is addiction and/or trauma. Some experiences you may have had as a child could lead to codependency, such as: abandonment, being told you are not valuable or worthy of Love, judgment, or receiving inconsistent love from your caregivers as a child.
A codependent relationship can be experienced with anyone, however, it is very common in romantic relationships. Some signs of codependency you could be experiencing with your Twin Flame are: the need for approval, believing self-care is selfish, needing to save them, difficultly in making decisions for yourself, can’t say “No,” difficulty spending time alone, feeling lost when you’re not with your person, lack of healthy boundaries, feeling trapped in the relationship, and anxiety when you don’t hear from them.
