How To Overcome Codependency And Live A Fulfilled Life


Recommended Posts

If you’ve ever been in love, you know that it is unselfish. While taking care of a home, being a supportive wife, mother, or daughter, you’re creating bonds and improving relationships with people closest to you. There isn’t anything wrong with this. 

However, sometimes people become overly emotional and invested in relationships, and that’s where the problem begins. Have you ever wondered what happens when you focus more on the needs and happiness of others while ignoring your own? Believe it or not, you are living a life of codependency. 

When codependency overtakes your life, there will only be drama, stress, heartbreaks, and disappointments. Likewise, it is better to overcome codependency before you throw yourself into a pit of depression. 

And so, you need to overcome codependency. While walking the road to overcoming codependency, you’ll fall back into the pit several times, but you will have to rise again and again. 

Here’s my advice on how to overcome codependency and live a fulfilled life:

#1 Indulge in some self-care: One of the best ways to overcome codependency is to start practicing self-care. While taking care of family, friends, children, you start ignoring your needs. 

So, devote some time to yourself. Pamper yourself, cook your favorite dish, and exercise regularly. Indulge yourself in the luxury of self-care and see how it does wonders to overcoming codependency. 

#2 Let go of that fear of rejection: Those who live a life of codependency live to seek approval from others. If you wish to overcome codependency and live a fulfilled life, you must learn to let go of the fear of rejection. And for this, I’d suggest you learn to accept rejections. Accept yourself the way you are, for it is the secret to a fulfilled life. 

#3 Learn what healthy love looks like: Codependency doesn’t mean you are in a healthy relationship. But, at the same time, it also doesn’t mean that your relationship is doomed. And so, to get things on track, you need to educate yourself on healthy relationships and work for them. 

#4 Seek Therapy: If you’ve been living a life of codependency for years, it won’t be easy to get over it. I suggest seeking help from a therapist. Therapy works wonders to overcome codependency and lets you live a fulfilled life. It will build your self-esteem and also help you develop healthy relationships.
