Maintain a healthy level of codependency with your partner


  1. Reflect on the relationship you had with your parents as a child.
    Like infants, adults need a secure base in order to explore, develop and learn. Every relationship from our past is influenced by how we were treated in our childhood. If we felt loved and cared for, that’s what we are going to demand in our adult relationships. 
  2. Ask for help from your partner when needed. 
    As humans, we crave emotional connection. Being raised with a mindset of living independently and not trusting anybody can be very harmful. Remember, the key to a healthy, secure relationship is the support partners give each other.
  3. Get closer to your partner by relying on him.
    Having a partner who meets our intrinsic attachment needs and acts as a secure base and safe haven can help us be emotionally and physically healthier and live longer. So, find a partner who demonstrates you can count on him/her.
