St Augustine said, “Our hearts are restless oh Lord, until they rest in You.” Such a true statement, yet many of us seem to want to fill this void in our hearts by seeking out human love at all costs. Our need for love is incredibly strong and it is even heightened if, as children, there was a lack of love exhibited. Co-dependent relationships on the surface appear to fill this strong desire for love and affection. However, these kinds of relationships tend to lead to destructive patterns and negative outcomes for one or both parties concerned. There is a call to be dependent on one another not just for our temporal needs but for eternal goals. Our dependency on each other should be healthy and ultimately help us into heaven, as in the case of marriage. Let’s talk about all forms of dependency with co-dependency being the first we tackle.
