Co-dependency in psychology defines the actions and perceptions of one individual rather than the relationship as a whole.
Somebody who is co-dependent often constructs their personality on supporting others. To affirm their self-worth, they can "depend" on others. To get this consent, a co-dependent individual can reject their own emotions or desires.Co-dependency typically begins when you are feeling abandoned mentally. You repress emotions, desires, insights, and thoughts in return. You're learning to numb the discomfort, to mistrust your family, or to become self-sufficient. You conceal behind a fake identity to cope and be welcomed or create compulsive habits to cope.
