Codependency may seem like a relationship issue; however, it is quite personal. Codependent behaviors are often the sign of underlying mental health struggles, such as trauma, low self-esteem, depression and anxiety.
Do you find yourself consistently putting the feelings of others before yourself? Do you find it difficult to say no? Are there times when you are willing to accept blame for situations that were not your fault? Are you afraid of being alone? These are all indicators that codependency counseling may be right for you.
