- Are you the sort of person who feels most content when they are looking after the needs of another person?
- Do you have a feeling of very low self-esteem and self-worth?
- Are you aware that most relationships show signs of some type of dependency; however, it is possible one of the relationships in your life goes way beyond this?
If you do feel as though you are resonating with any of the questions above, therapy for Dependent Personality disorder may well prove to be the answer.
Where to Go From Here?
So, as we have already established above, the vast majority of relationships feature some degree of dependency and it is important to note that this is perfectly natural. It is when this dependency becomes codependency in a psychological context that things may start to become a little darker for the sufferer.
People in need of Codependency counseling or therapy for Dependent Personality disorder will likely find themselves in relationships where they simply cannot function without the validation of another person. They will exhibit signs of very low self-esteem and their whole existence will be centered around this other individual. Such a person could be a parent, who themselves have experienced problems with addiction or other issues in their earlier life; a partner, sibling or anyone that becomes the be-all-and-end-all to the codependent individual.
If you feel as though you have stumbled across a page on the internet that really seems to be ticking all the right boxes for the way in which you feel, let this be the first step on your journey to a way of life where you enjoy relationships with a healthy level of dependency. As it is relatively common for people to seek therapy for Codependency and Dependent Personality disorder, we do hope you will understand that there are trained professionals on hand to help you move forward with such a disorder.
