Codependency is excessive emotional or psychological reliance on another. Most people are codependent in relationships because they fear rejection or disapproval if they were to reveal their true self. So they wear a mask and act to please those around them. The trouble is that this never works in the long run, especially in close relationships. It first creates resentment and then anger.
The solution is to love yourself at the deepest level of being. This is accomplished by connecting with your soul and with God in regular meditation. You soon experience your true worth as you feel God’s love for you flow into your heart. It then overflows into your daily activities and becomes your source for peace and happiness. This experience becomes the solid foundation of your self-esteem and you never again feel the need to seek the approval of another. As your self love grows you begin to see others as yourself. If they reject you or voice disapproval you simply allow it to be and send them your love.
