Are You a Love Addict?


I used to be a certified one and it’s not pretty, its dark, controlling and very limiting to myself and others. I will detail that part of my journey in another article and what I have gone through to realize that it is just about being whole and love itself that heals those attachments. I still have traces of this behavior but it’s kind of under control as of now and that’s why we’re all here to help each other. Look at the positive light no matter how dark it is.

And here I would like to share with you the perfect topic of discussion by my partner Crystal Andrus. She has gone through difficult challenges like you cannot imagine. And here she is to talk to you about one aspect  of being a woman who tend to be needy of external attention from a man, or attachment to things and routines, even from too much coffee, shopping, games, habits, etc.

Summary of the discussion provided by the S.W.A.T. Institute
Does any of this sound familiar:
•      Do you often confuse lust with love?
•      Are you afraid to trust anyone in a relationship?
•      Do you have a tendency to leave one relationship for another?
•      Do you mistake intensity for intimacy (drama-driven relationships)?
•      Do you feel inadequate, lonely, or worthless without a love partner?
•      Do you have a tendency to trade “intimate activity” for love or attachment?
•      Do you have a driven, desperate, or frantic personality—acting in ways (towards a lover) that you’d be embarrassed of afterwards?
•      Have you ever carried on a “secret” life – one that you wouldn’t want your parents, children, or even, husband, to know about?
•      Do you perceive attention, attraction, and sex as basic needs (on par with water and food)?

Love addictions are rarely taken as seriously as other addictions, and yet someone with a love addiction can be in extreme pain—physically, emotionally and spiritually.

I always try to share important work from my colleagues and today is one of those special days!

If you feel that you may be struggling with a love addiction this may be a life-changing conversation for you…
