How to Stop Being Codependent and Have a Healthy Relationship

#6 Get your own, separate hobbies. Most codependent couples have the same hobbies. They do everything together and while it may seem like a lot of fun, it’s not helping. So try some new hobbies and have it be just yours. There’s something really special about having a unique, interesting hobby your partner doesn’t partake in.

#7 Spend time apart as a whole. Do you spend all day together or every single night? What about the weekends? If you’re spending every moment of your free time together, it’s time for you to start thinking about spending a lot of time apart.

#8 Learn how to be happy away from your significant other. You need to know how to be happy while not being with your partner. It’s perfectly fine that they make you happy. What’s not okay is that you’re now solely dependent on them making you happy.

Be away from them. Figure out what makes you really happy even when you’re not together. This will help you realize that it’s okay to be away from them.

#9 Ask friends for help. Be aware that your friends may be upset with you. Codependency makes you forget everyone and only focus on your partner. And that means you may not be that great of friends with them anymore.

Open up to them and confess your mistakes. Tell them you really want to work on getting things back on track and having a healthy relationship. If you’re lucky, they’ll want to help.
