Chemical Dependency and the Dysfunctional Family - Codependency - Are You Codependent?

people look codependents

Not all codependents look alike. However, if you answer “yes” to many of the following statements, you may want to take a closer look at your behavior.

  • I am afraid no one will like me;
  • I try to avoid conflict as much as possible;
  • Other people's happiness is more important than my own;
  • When things go wrong, it's my fault;
  • People do not really like me. They are just pretending;
  • I never do anything right.

Codependents think they are helping someone they love. By keeping the dysfunction a secret, they believe they are making things more peaceful and easier for everyone in the family.
