This is somehow related in a sense that to some people, their codependency is so theral, they are not only fake and shallow to themselves, they are also fake to the people around them. I had a "friend" like that. She was married to a very selfish immature man who would rather spend his weekend playing golf rather than enjoying it together. He was also gone a great deal of time. When she tried to confront him with the therapy, his take on that was that it was HER problem and he had no necessity to attend even for couple sessions. In the meantime, this friend and I whenever we got together, we could only talk about the weather. She was so closed off, it allowed her to perpetuate her denial and lies to herself of being in a happy marriage. Whenever I tried to get close to her, she would pull out. Eventually, after her confession about the husban's refusal of therapy, I stopped hearing from her. I guess life in lies was more confortable than dealing with the real cause of her mysery. I hope she sees the light in some point in her life. Or not, who knows.
