Tippy Toes Personality?

Am I the only one that thinks that these characteristics fit Tippy?

Symptoms of Codependency:

  • Judging self, others without mercy.
  • Low self esteem, often projected onto others. (eg: Why don't they get their act together!)
  • Difficulty in developing or sustaining meaningful relationships.
  • Belief that others cause or are responsible for the codependent's emotions.
  • Overreacting to change. (or intense fear of / inability to deal with change.)
  • Inability to see alternatives to situations, thus responding very impulsively.
  • Constantly seeking approval and affirmation, yet having compromised sense of self.
  • Being either super responsible or super irresponsible. (Or alternating between these.)
  • Feeling of fear, insecurity, inadequacy, guilt, hurt, and shame which are denied.
  • Resentment of authority figures.
  • Hypersensitivity to criticism.
  • Being addicted to excitement / drama. (Chaos making.)
  • Dependency upon others and fear of abandonment.
  • Confusion between love and pity.
  • Tendency to look for "victims" to help.
  • Rigidity and need to control.
  • Lies, when it would be just as easy to tell the truth.
