When you are experiencing issues with your boundaries or codependency in your relationships, you might become so invested in getting validation from others that you are unable to function as an independent person. You may only have an identity in another person and feel as if you can’t be happy unless they are happy. You also may have an intense need for external approval, so much so that you struggle to make decisions without other people’s input because you’re afraid that they may leave you.
