Question: What is the root cause of codependency?

Codependency is usually rooted in childhood. Often, a child grows up in a home where their emotions are ignored or punished. This emotional neglect can give the child low self-esteem and shame. They may believe their needs are not worth attending to.

What are the three main components of codependency?

Based on her research, Spann concluded that codependency boils down to three elements: an extreme focus outside of the self; a lack of openly expressing ones feelings; and an attempt to derive purpose and meaning through relationships with others, rather than through ones own self.
