Join Bethany and Lauren as they dive into their dependency issues on both ends of the spectrum with both co dependency and extreme independence. Could they possibly be co dependent with each other? Haha! They also butcher Jean Piaget's name and then discuss his theory of cognitive development.

Remember my info


Your extreme independence is a trauma response

"I used to pride myself on my independence. Why would I want to rely on anybody else? People always end up hurting you, abandoning you or betraying you. That’s just how life works — or so I thought. Now, I can see things more clearly. This way of thinking is not only untrue, it’s actually quite sad. And it’s always, always rooted in some deep-seated trauma that we haven’t addressed."

Codependency vs. Interdependency

Learn more about codependency and interdependency: "Society is highly specialized and interdependent, so that few of us would know how to survive without running water, electricity, and a supermarket. We’re also dependent upon our personal relationships. Human brains aren’t fully developed for 18 years, and psychological and financial independence from our parents takes even longer. Moreover, as adults we depend upon others to fill sexual, social, and emotional needs, such as friendship, communication, nurturing, appreciation, learning, love, and touch. The closer a relationship, the more we’re interconnected."
