You’ve probably heard about getting hooked on drugs or alcohol or being glued to a slot machine from sunup to sundown, but is it possible to actually become addicted . . . to a person? Sadly, the answer is Yes. Codependency is a relationship addiction. Comparable to depending on false gods that are powerless to help, or depending on a broken water well that won’t hold water, it simply won’t work! In these Keys for Living, find ways to break the chains of relationship addiction and foster a renewed commitment to keep Christ first in your life.

Balancing an Unbalanced Relationship

“Why are my relationships so chaotic?” … “I know I shouldn’t be treated this way, and I’m afraid of being alone.”

Are your relationships built on independence and trust, or do they demand dependence for survival? If it’s the latter, you might be in a codependent relationship.

On the job, in the family or among friends … a codependent person has an unhealthy dependence on others.

We are not meant to live completely dependent on another person. Codependency happens in relationships when someone is so dependent on another person that they become controlled or manipulated. It’s like a relationship addiction.

Boundaries don’t exist in codependent relationships, and the codependent person often enables destructive behaviors. Codependency can take an emotional toll on people, but there is hope. We want to equip you with helpful information to break free from codependency.
