Ep 184 – If You NEED People to Need YOU, You’re Codependent

Codependency doesn’t always exist as your need for someone else to do something for you, but as you subconsciously needing someone else to need YOU in order to feel worthy and valuable. This week’s episode 184 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I am sharing the realization I had myself that if you need people to need you, you’re codependent!

In this episode of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I’m sharing my own story as well as a client’s story where we realized our codependency through finding worth in being needed by others. I also encourage you to check in on the motives behind your behaviors and identifying which of your issues may be linked back to a lack of boundaries. 

When you get better with your boundaries, you suddenly have this energetic force field around you where you’re able to hold in the good energy around you and repel other’s negative energy, no matter the chaos surrounding you. 

Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on living a more whole life and to hear even more about the points outlined above.
