A Closer Look at Codependency

Some experts attest that up to 98% of our country's population suffers from symptoms of codependency. It's so ingrained in our culture, we don't even recognize it.


Don't believe us?


"I am a perfectionist and judge myself harshly"

"I am afraid of, or worry about, how others may respond to my feelings or behavior"

"I like to keep busy so I don't have to think about things"

"I feel unappreciated and unseen by others"

"I feel anxious most of the time and don't know why"

"I think that for me to feel better, other people are the ones that need to change"

"I find it difficult to be vulnerable and ask for help"


If any of these sound like you... you might have some codependency issues. 😲


Don't freak out, we're here to help! In the coming week we will cover what codependency is and what causes it, help you to evaluate your own level of codependent or counterdependent behaviors, and offer you some tools for working on yourself and your relationships.


{In this post, we used information from the book, Breaking Free of the Codependency Trap by Drs. Barry K and Janae B Weinhold. This book is seriously amazing and we highly recommend that obtain a copy for yourself if you're interested in learning about codependency and codependent behaviors!}

Enso Behavioral Healthcare

Health is a required subject in all schools. We learned what to do about common injuries like cuts, bruises, and burns. Isn't it odd that no one ever taught us about mental hygiene? There are no first aid lessons to show us how to take care of emotional injuries. Surely punctured pride is more common than a nail in the hand. And bruised feelings must outnumber black eyes a million to one! Thankfully it's never too late to learn! Enso Behavioral Healthcare is your emotional urgent care center to restore your balance and re-align your purpose.
