Questions for Reflection:

1. Where do my dependencies show up in my intimate relationship?

2. What am I asking my partner to do for me that I, as a mature adult, need to be doing for myself?

3. Am I taking too much responsibility for the emotional well-being of the Other? Am I taking on his/her journey at the expense of my own, and if so, why?

4. In what ways do I seek to avoid suffering?

5. What fears, lack of permission or old behaviors block me from living my life?
