The Codependent Woman Posted on 21 July Across the globe, women have become fiercely protective of their right to self-determine themselves and their lifestyles. Psychology calls these women codependent , to explain their subconscious drive to dependently attach themselves to relationships, food, drug, or alcohol to satisfy unmet childhood needs.

Inverted narcissists also known as inverts, covert narcissists or codependents share many traits with overt regular narcissists, with the biggest difference being how they interact with others. Regular narcissists are vampires who seek to draw adulation narcissistic supply from other people, while inverted narcissists offer themselves as supply.

So I have learned something different. Create a relationship with yourself. This simple act is where it can all begin.
