Here are three things you can do if you would like to break out of being codependent:
1. The first thing is to recognise that you and your partner are codependent. Become aware of the times you are limiting yourself or acting from a place of sacrifice. If you placate your partner, apologise for them, or could not imagine being able to survive without them, then you are probably codependent.
2. Your dependence on each other hides your gift of self-reliance - your ability to find the love within yourself that you are depending on your partner to give you. It is time to let go of your negative self-beliefs and embrace your sense of self-love and self-acceptance.
3. Talk to your partner sensitively about your codependence and how it makes you feel. Find out how they feel about their own dependence as well as your dependence on them. Begin to heal your dependency together by inspiring each other to find self-love. Connect in a more open and trusting way with each other, but retain your individual uniqueness.
