How healthy would you say your attachment is with your partner?
I don’t know where I picked it up, but somewhere in my adolescence I adopted the belief that a healthy relationship was one where I could not be happy if my partner was not happy.
It’s simply a belief, and I’m not saying it right or wrong. Some of you may feel that way about your current relationship.
What that belief created for me was a level of attachment to my partner, maybe approaching full blown codependency, where I simultaneously felt responsible for their feelings and at the whim of them.
In today’s episode I share an email from a listener who opens up on her relationship attachment. I appreciate her vulnerability and courage in this one because it gives us all a chance to heal and grow.
