Should we work on our codependent relationship?

by Anonymous



Is it EVER possible to remain in the relationship and stop the codependent cycle?

If we both acknowledge the problem, try to come up with a game plan of how to deal with it when it comes up-- is it possible to work on it together and change? Or is the only way to change, to leave that relationship for good, do the work alone, and then find a healthier relationship the next time?


---------------------------------------------------


A codependent relationship is dysfunctional, yet the two of you stay together, so it’s highly unlikely that you can work on the relationship together and change it when you're in it.

Both of you have your own work to do. To have a healthier relationship, you must move on.
