Only you can make yourself happy. You can’t rely on anyone else to make you happy. You can’t rely on anyone else to be there for you. In the end it’s just you. You are alone at the end of the day even if you are sleeping next to someone. You can’t expect anything from anyone because they will always disappoint you. What makes you happy? What could you do by yourself all day and be blissfully happy? I have struggled with this for so long. Have you ever heard of the word Co-Dependency? It is a term that is hard to define. But basically you rely on others too much. You are not confident enough in yourself and you let other people’s emotions control your life. Most often than not a codependent will find themselves in a relationship with an alcoholic, drug addict, or some other addict. The co-dependent is a control freak who feels like they have to control everything to make it go “right” because nobody can do it as well as they can.
This book is great and helped me understand Codependency more.
Codependent No More: How to Stop Controlling Others and Start Caring for Yourself
I’m looking for more books to read and understand it more, but for now I just know that I am a Codependent in recovery. You can’t be in a truly healthy relationship if you are codependent and unhappy, so worry about making yourself happy and that’s it.
Are you or anyone you know codependent? If you don’t want to comment below, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and share with me your thoughts on it. Are you dealing with it? Do you know any other good books on the subject?
Thanks for reading!! I hope to hear from some of you!
