One of the most prevalent impacts of our difficult childhoods is codependency. When we think of codependency, we tend to think of people pleasing or approval seeking, but those are symptoms of the deeper issue. Codependency at its core, is a loss of self.
We do not have a clear sense of who we are and so we seek to be whoever we think others want us to be, or will approve of.
