Co-Dependency (Relationship Addiction) is an emotional and behavioural condition that affects an individual’s ability to have a healthy relationship. It is also known as ‘relationship addiction’ because people with co-dependency often form or maintain relationships that are one-sided, emotionally destructive and / or abusive.

This type of addiction often involves placing a lower priority on one's own needs, while being overly concerned with the needs of others.

If you do everything to keep others happy at the expense of your peace and happiness, you are not benefiting anyone (especially if this prevents you from ending a dangerous relationship).

You’re not being a peacemaker; you're allowing yourself to be a casualty - a victim. When you do this you have no power over your life, and therefore you do not own your own life.
