Signs of a codependent person revolve around how their actions, feelings, and thoughts are influenced by the people in their lives.
A codependent person often is unaware of or disconnected from their own feelings, needs, and desires.
Their moods, likes, and dislikes will shift based on the person next to them — either to resemble the same or in reaction to.
They often go to extreme lengths to control others and are resentful when their efforts go unappreciated.
A codependent person is often a people pleaser with little to no boundaries, struggles to say no, and overall lacks healthy communication skills.
A codependent person is, in essence, a person no longer aligned to their true self, and is therefore quite difficult to put into words.
