Can someone explain to me the differences between compromising and co-dependency? When does it become codependency?

How much are you compromising, and how long has this been going on? It is a fine line and most would say today that codependency is psychobable. How is your life working for you ? Are you generally happy ?
Is your life balanced ? If you made a list of good, and bad, which is longer, can you effect the bad? Do you know who you are, or .............?

I agree with Molly...I think it's the amount of compromising that you do. Do you compromise to the extent that your needs never get fulfilled? Do you feel neglected because of it? I think that's the key. Not that you have to have your own way every single time, but that when you really feel strongly about something, that you stand up for yourself and get what you need.

Well I definetly know that I have been codependent and not compromising. In the beginning of the three year relationship I was just compromising, but somewhere at some point I started to become codependent. I started to change my "personaility" to fit the needs of the person I was with. How do I stop this pattern of behavior from happening in future relationships? How can I make sure that I recognize the warning signs?

self awareness and remember your partner will respect you more if you stand up for what you want or need. Be ware of self-centered men. They want everything to revolve around them. Find a man that cares about your needs and is willing to compromise.
