Codependent parent

Post by Yesnomaybeso » Sun Feb 02, 2020 9:19 am

Isn't a codependent parent just as bad as a narcissistic one? I've been reflecting on my mother's behavior lately and it seems to me that it has screwed me up just as much as my father, just it's less obvious.

Yes definitely. It doesn't make someone a bad person, it's just a major limitation for cultivating healthy relationships.

two sides of the same coin, just a different expression. Equally dysfunctional.
