Autonomy and codependency

Autonomy and codependency

March 16, 2017

You desired autonomy yet settled for co-dependence. This is also not the first time you have done this. Autonomy means that you know you have developed the ability to make choices and decisions in your life that you know are in your best interest, independent of the actions of others.

Co-dependence on the other hand, means that you have chosen to accept a distraction that would keep you from focusing on yourself because you are focused on the other. This is a futile attempt to fulfill a lack you experience in yourself, and it never works. Co-dependency then becomes an addiction for you, meaning you think you need it to survive.

Now what you desired was to experience the complete freedom to make your own choices and decisions, and that is autonomy.
