We all suffer from unhealthy relationships. Most of us don’t even realize it. And, why would we? We were born dependent on another for sustenance and care… it is our inherent nature as a human being and the process of our evolution. We need someone to feed us, protect us, change us, comfort us. We were essentially helpless. We all originated this way (not equally), but not one us would be alive if someone hadn’t taken care of us… This is not the problem, nor is depending on someone… Unhealthy relationships manifest from never being taught to transition to an emotionally sovereign being. One who owns his or her feelings, actions, decisions, and life… is mature and responsible. One who doesn’t blame or hold someone or something else responsible for how they feel, or the reason they are where they are… One who doesn’t need anything or anyone to be happy or take care of them… And sadly our parents have been caught in the same cycles, so who would have taught us? In a healthy relationship each person is autonomous and the two come together to share that autonomy- not depend on the other to give them something or an identity… © Jodi Healy
