Co-dependency depending on how severe the situation can be like slavery. Mental even physical slavery. I found this amazing presentation on modern-day slavery and just have to share it! It is not about co-dependency per say but as you see these individuals and realise they are totally dependent on the masters that run their lives – dependent for their survival it becomes a dependency – an unhealthy way of life they are powerless to change or even to see without help. I have been thinking about how, when and where I will be able to help and counsel others when I am finished with my education and then I see amazing things like this… sometimes I feel sorry for myself and the things I have to deal with in my life, this was a reality check for today.
