We make choices, often unconsciously, and then we have to decide whether or not these choices are beneficial to our long-term happiness.
There is a lot to think about when it comes to making the right choices. I am sure that my own choices in my relationship were not beneficial to my long-term happiness.
The truth is that there are two kinds of choices: ones that are in our control and ones that are not. For instance, we can decide to work out or to watch a movie or to read a book and not have the same results as we would if we decided to do it ourselves. What if we decided to choose the latter type of choices? We are more self-aware and more aware of our own choices.
My point is that self-awareness is part of the reason we have the ability to choose to do something. The other part is the ability to make choices that are beneficial to us. So we have the ability to choose what is beneficial to us, and also making those choices that aren’t so beneficial to us, but are still beneficial to us.
I think the real difference lies in the quality of the choices. People with self-awareness are aware of the negative aspects of their choices, and choose to consciously make better choices. People without self-awareness are unaware of the negative aspects of their choices, and choose to unconsciously make worse choices.
Like many people, I don’t think I’m a great example of self-awareness. I’ve made bad choices in the past, and I know they’re bad choices. I also realize I don’t have a lot of self awareness.
Because of this, I think I understand the concept of codependent relationships. I think I know when I’m being codependent and when Im not. But I’ve never done the self-awareness test. I think that’s something that Codependence 101 should cover, or at least explain it in a way that makes sense to me.
I think being a codependent is the opposite of being an independent person. You have to be an independent person to be codependent. Think about it. In the codependent relationship, you have to be dependent on the other person. You have to be dependent on someone to do something for you. I think when people have that relationship, they know that there is someone who is dependent on them.
I think the way that this is explained is in terms of the codependents being the “supposed” dependent people. We are the dependent people because we “have to be dependent on someone to do something for us,” which are the “supposed” dependent people.
If I have to depend on someone to take care of me, it is to take care of them. If you have to depend on someone, you have to depend on someone because you can’t have it your own way. If you have to depend on someone, you have to depend on them because you don’t have the power to make your own decisions.
