Attachment and codependency issues are largely seen in personal connections with others and is often develop in childhood. Codependency may look like experiencing challenges in making decisions, difficulty in identifying feelings, difficulty communicating, and seeking external validation. Attachment issues, on the other hand, are on a spectrum of anxiety and avoidance. For example, attachment issues can present as feeling anxious, fearing rejection, becoming clingy and seeking excessive reassurance. They can also present as avoiding confrontation, bottling emotions, and being hyper-independent.
