What Is Interdependence In a Relationship?

Interdependence in a relationship refers to a healthy and balanced way of relating to one another where both partners rely on each other for emotional support, care, and communication.

It is an equal partnership where each person recognizes their own needs, as well as the needs of their partner.

In an interdependent relationship, there is a mutual understanding that both individuals contribute to the relationship, and both are responsible for its success.

This type of relationship allows for independence while also creating a strong bond and connection between partners.

It requires open communication, trust, and respect for each other’s boundaries and autonomy.

Interdependence Quotes

1. “People think needing a man is weak. I believe what is truly weak is not ALLOWING ourselves to surrender to our deepest desire to have a protective, strong, caring, masculine man in our life.” ― Renee Wade

2. “Action has meaning only in relationship, and without understanding relationship, action on any level will only breed conflict. The understanding of relationship is infinitely more important than the search for any plan of action.” ― Jiddu Krishnamurti

3. “All have their worth and each contributes to the worth of the others.” ― J.R.R. Tolkien

5. “All of life is dependent upon other life, and the closer we consider what constitutes living, the harder life becomes to define.” ― John Green

7. “But the reality is that women today do not think of themselves in the context of helping “their man.” Women today have been brainwashed into thinking that efforts in that direction are in the category of oppression, subservience, and catering to frail male egos. It is sad that this is the prevalent point of view, because interdependence is what ultimately feeds both the man and the woman what they truly need to be happy.” ― Laura Schlessinger

8. “Certainly it is true that we need to maintain independence in certain areas of life. We must not be passive but active agents in this strenuous, challenging world. At the same time, we must not make a fetish out of our self-sufficiency. It is normal and wise for us to rely at moments upon the insights, the courage, and the consolation which our human brothers can give us , knowing full well that they in turn sill rely upon our gifts and strength on other critical occasions. Let us not be too proud to admit weakness at moments and to absorb strength from others in our day of need. The ruthless repression of our common human problems and fears can only make us hard or ill; the sharing of these problems with our human comrades alone can save us from the sin of pride, the idolatry of self-sufficiency.” ― Joshua Loth Liebman

9. “Givers reject the notion that interdependence is weak. Givers are more likely to see interdependence as a source of strength, a way to harness the skills of multiple people for a greater good.” ― Adam Grant

10. “Life doesn’t make any sense without interdependence. We need each other, and the sooner we learn that, the better for us all.”― Erik H. Erikson

11. “Man does not live in isolation, we depend upon each other.” ― Lailah Gifty Akita

12. “My glorification of independence and individualism made me and easy target for the myth of meritocracy, and overshadowed what in my heart I knew to be true: the deep interconnectedness I longed for with family, friends, colleagues, and even strangers is core to human survival. Interdependence is our lifeblood.” ― Debby Irving

13. “Our culture values independence and isolation far too much, it seems to me–we have a hard time making ourselves part of things, of making ourselves responsible to others, and trusting others to be there for us. Sure, there’s pain involved if we get hurt, but there’s far more pain in isolation. I love community because God gave us other people to live with, not to pull away from, and I learn so much from others that I can’t imagine my life without the learning I’ve gained from getting to know other people.” ― Tom Walsh

14. “Pretending like you can take on the world on your own isn’t brave, it’s stupid.” ― Temple West

15. “Talking about independence makes me wonder, Who is truly independent in this world? A farmer who grows food is dependent on a baker, a barber, a doctor, and so on. A doctor is dependent on other people of different professions in order to survive. I am dependent and will be dependent on certain caregivers and therapists. Those caregivers and therapists need people like me to earn their bread and butter and draw their salaries. So no one is doing any favors when choosing whatever his means of livelihood is.” ― Tito Rajarshi Mukhopadhyay

16. “The combination of realizing our distinctiveness along with our unity is seeing interdependence.” ― Sharon Salzberg

20. “There is no “I” as such apart from others.” ― Gyomay M Kubose

21. “Things are highly interdependent. The very concepts of “we” and “they” are becoming irrelevant. War is out of date because our neighbors are part of ourselves. We see this in economic, educational and environmental issues. Although we may have some ideological differences or other conflicts with our neighbor, economically and environmentally we share essentially the same country, and destroying our neighbor is destroying ourselves. It’s foolish.” ― Dalai Lama XIV

22. “Two did not become one, but rather two came together—each one strong, healthy, and resilient, making the whole steadfast and true. They didn’t lose themselves in each other, but found themselves in each other instead.” ― Jennifer Lane

23. “We give something, and that opens the possibility of receiving: we naturally receive something when we give. This is how we live, whether it is in the business world, in our social lives, or in any other context. Giving and taking is happening all the time. Living is dependent on giving: we give and therefore we receive. This interdependence is natural; however, it takes a special effort to train our mind to know this well enough so that our understanding is clear and strong. – 17th Karmapa” ― Ogyen Trinley Dorje
