Codependency is a term professionals use to describe a certain kind of toxic relationship. It’s characterized by the need for one partner to fix the other in an attempt to avoid their own problems. It’s often accompanied by possessiveness, jealousy and manipulation. It’s an addictive kind of love with extreme emotion, and it guarantees the pain both people crave. Saying Goodbye to Toxic Boys is that very love story. Maggie is a free-spirited optimist and Devin is a self-obsessed womanizer. They find comfort in one another as trauma unfolds in both their lives. Going through coping skills from meditation and mindfulness to chain smoking cigarettes, they learn if unconditional love can be enough to save them and break their cycle.
