Is codependency healthy or is it detrimental in a relationship? Does it make you the real you, without having to seek approval or validation to move forward? 

I like my actions to be affirmed by my partner but I do not want him to overstep. This statement somehow identifies us in a relationship. Finding  that thin line of good reliance on people versus codependence can be difficult and complicated. How do we draw the line?

Join me today in embracing our true selves with Chelsea Connors.
