Tip #14 Strive for Co-existence, not Co-dependence… Love him. Love her. Be there for each other. Support one another. However, don’t forget to be fully present in who you are. When love has room for you both to genuinely exist, it will have a greater capacity for growth. Unlike co-dependence, it won’t require you to blur where you begin and the other person ends, all the while sacrificing healthy boundaries and critical needs. Instead, dare to encourage each other without diminishing and destroying necessary parts of yourself.
