She explains that co-dependency is a negative pattern of behaviors that is passed on generation to generation where any addictive behaviors are prevalent. It usually found in the dys-functional families who don’t even recognize that there is some problem. They tend to deny, repress and disregard their feelings. They detach themselves from relationships. The codependent relationships are one-sided, emotionally destructive and abusive. They tend to ignore their own personal needs and well being just in order to ensure the well being of the other person. They have severe issues of trust, fear of abandonment, a compelling need to control others even get indulged into compulsive behaviors.
