Men and women who suffer from codependency have magnified feelings of shame, fear, anger, pain and guilt. They often find themselves in a heightened state of anxiety.
When people think about Codependency they seldom see that most of us have traits that show up in our relationships. If there is conflict in our relationships there more than likely is co dependency at work whether we recognize it or not.
So how can you tell if your relationship is unhealthy? Here’s a list of common feelings and symptoms associated with codependency. You may be in a codependent relationship if you identify with any of the following statements:
You play the role of caregiver in your family or with your partner.
You have a hard time leaving relationships, even if they are unhealthy.
No matter how hard you try, nothing you do is ever good enough.

You’re a classic peacekeeper and people-pleaser.
