Foodie + Which -pendent?

I have noticed in the last 4 years, my weight has fluctuated between 135lbs and 150lbs.  In the past year, it has been more on the 150 side.  I blame it all on Houston.  You may have seen some food mentions in my other posts; Houston has made me fall in love with food all over again.  This city is a melting pot of different cultures that you can really find any type of food.  I just need to learn to be more moderate with my intake......boooooo.

Which -pendent?

Are you independent, codependent, or dependent?

Many times, in relationships we can be categorized as codependent or dependent simply because we rely on someone else to help our lives become easier or more fulfilling...but why can we not be in a relationship and still be independent? 

Oh because I am independent, I must be single?

No, being independent does not necessarily mean that we do not need a partner, it means we can make due with our lives without one and still be stable, comfortable, and happy.  But, codependency and dependency can trickle in from time to time because, yes, in a relationship we do convey a level of responsibility and expectation on someone else.  Does that mean we become less independent? No.  It means we have learned to communicate with someone else other than ourselves to create and maintain homeostasis....which is a form of codependency and there is nothing wrong with that if you and your partner equally rely on one another.  The problem only lies when one becomes dependent on their partners.  Many women fall into this hole but, if they are comfortable with being solely dependent on their husband for everything; any and all things that require sustenance and substance, then who am I to tell these women that their way of life is putting women in a backwards spiral?  To each her own. An independent person can truly maintain contentment without another being.
