    You may only get this reference if you watch Parks and Recreation. But anyway one of the characters ( whose name is Ann obviously lol) has a realization that she tends to mold her own personality into the personality of whatever guy she's dating.

    Who has been through this in real life? Is it something you've overcome or is it something you are still struggling with? Do you know why you tend to do this or is the root still uncovered?

    Isn't that codependency? We can never just 'be' because being isn't good enough. We have to become something we're not to manipulate someone in liking us... something perfect.


    Be good, be right, be perfect, be strong, don't have fun, and alway be in control.

    We are all codependent to a degree, and it's so hard to see sometimes.
