Interdependence Can Build a Lasting and Safe Relationship

Being dependent on another person can be unhealthy. Independence, taken to an extreme, can actually get in the way of us being able to connect emotionally with others in a meaningful way.
Interdependence suggests that partners recognize and value the importance of the emotional bond they share while maintaining a solid sense of self within the relationship dynamic.
A codependent person tends to rely heavily on others for their sense of self and well-being. There is an enmeshed sense of responsibility to another person to meet their needs and/or for their partner to meet all of their needs to feel okay about who they are.
When partners feel cherished and valued, the relationship becomes a safe haven and a place where the couple can be interdependent.
Allowing your partner room and opportunity to do these same things will be the key to establishing a healthy, interdependent relationship.
