Angry Addiction to bad behaviors in relationships - August 6th 2010, 10:04 PM

The reason I have this here in addictive behaviors is because its more of a behavioral thing then a loving thing. I am a extreemly codependent person.

I do not ask others to meet my needs or desires.
I value others' approval of my thinking, feelings and behavior over my own.
I do not perceive myself as a lovable or worthwhile person.
I compromise my own values and integrity to avoid rejection or others' anger.
I am very senseitve to how others are feeling and feel the same.
I am extremely loyal, remaining in harmful situations too long.
I value others' opinions and feelings more than my own and am afraid to express differing opinions and feelings of my own.
I accept sex when I want love.

This wonderful list is a result of wikipedia's page on codependency

I need some help. Some advice and ideas on how to break these habbits, please.

"Setting boundaries is not a more sophisticated way of manipulation - although some people will say they are setting boundaries, when in fact they are attempting to manipulate. The difference between setting a boundary in a healthy way and manipulating is: when we set a boundary we let go of the outcome."

You shut your mouth
How can you say
I go about things the wrong way
I am Human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does

trying to diagnose yourself on the internet can be very dangerous
but yes codependency can be a terrible thing resulting from any form of childhood abuse or bullying.
Surround yourself with the people that love you. Like your family and friends. They will treat you right and like you should be treated. You should never settle for less than you deserve. Don't let people hurt you or take advantage of you. Don't try to seek the aproval of others.


You're the missing piece I need the song inside of me

It's not too late, it's never too late

I may have failed but I have loved you from the start
Don't ever let them take
advantage of you!

If anything, it wouldn't be an addiction, it would be something for the mental health area. To break the pattern, try to do the opposite of the things written down. But it isn't an addiction.
