Concepts: Counterdependency🚶May 05, 2022
Counterdependency: 'My well-being depends on not-depending on anyone'.
Ironically this defensive stance does the very thing it’s trying to avoid: Being defined by others. I must be independent to be free! Ha, what kind of freedom is that? True freedom is as free to be vulnerable as guarded, as free to depend on others as yourself, as free to need intimacy as it is to walk away when things don’t feel right. We love and care about each other, and pretending we don't is self-protective measure that costs exactly what it promises to provide. (We all do this to some extent!)
With love, Jordan
