Have you ever felt being too clingy and being so afraid of separating from someone? Or have you ever felt like your so needy and passive? Well if these are present, then you may not be psychologically alright.
This type of psychological disorder is called DPD (Dependent Personality Disorder), which is usually diagnosed in both men and women during their young adulthood.
So how do we know if we have this:
- Making decisions is not easy for you without assurance that it will happen. It could be through a form of advice or reassurance.
- Acting passive and helpless towards adult responsibilities.
- When a relationship ends, you felt an intense fear of abandonment and a sense of devastation yet you often moves right into another relationship when one ends.
- You take criticism very sensitively.
- Being pessimistic and losing self-confidence
- You go with the flow despite not agreeing to it since you fear of losing support or approval.
- Due to lack of self-confidence, it is hard for you to start a task.
- Being alone is hard
- You tolerate mistreatment and abuse from others.
- Placing the needs of their caregivers above their own
- Tendency of being naive and to fantasize.
