Because of the misunderstanding reflected in in some of the early replies to this article when it was originally posted on Reddit's Codependency sub, may I make it clear that this is about romantic partner, employer-and-employee, coach-and-player and other relationships. And NOT about children being neglected, rejected or abandoned by their parents. (That several people did that on this particular sub does intrigue me, however. Because a lot of people who do not process the grief -- and clear the hurdle -- of having been thus treated by their parents develop unfortunate compensations that cause others to reject and abandon them in adulthood.)
