Fighting the Effects of Codependency
Codependency can look different ways for different people. For me, an effect of codependency was losing sight of what I actually wanted, as opposed to what choice would make me happy.
My therapist suggested I put in place some practical strategies to help me re-learn how to listen to my own wants and needs. I've found that spending time alone is key to this. Not only is a day spent alone really enjoyable for me, it also puts me back in touch with my most basic likes and preferences. Here is a video where I explain this a little more.
