My therapist described my last relationship as codependent. Me, being the all giving all doing you are my priority and everyone in the world comes before me. My partner being the all taking all needing my life is full and busy and I come first.
In an image it’s me looking at him and him looking away.
Codepents are sometimes described as immature, unrealistic, having a low self esteem and desperate /needy.
For me, the rescuer, the nurse, bring there for someone when I think they need me is natural. Not being there makes me uncomfortable. That is, in my head, if you love and care about someone, you’d be there.
