When Sinead O’Connor sang the haunting lyrics to “Nothing Compares to You” romance addicts with red, bleary eyes and tear streaked faces the world over turned to their best friend, and voices quivering whispered some derivative of the following statement: “It’s true. I will never find anyone as good as him/her. He’s THE ONE”.
At TRG we believe in love as much as the next person. In fact we have personally witnessed the birth, and rebirth of many beautiful love stories. But if love is going to blossom, as opposed to die on the vine, it must be built on a strong personal foundation and come with a “Baggage Free” entry pass.
Unfortunately, many of us are drawn into relationships that are more addictive in their nature and ways of relating. Love addicted relationships are usually intense, can be volatile, and have a predictable “cycle” (make up / break up / make up again!).
All of this intensity is a great way to alter our mood (think “high’s” and “lows”) and trick us into believing that we have genuinely deep feelings for our partner. The problem is, until we can “level out” we don’t accurately know what our true feelings are! If we don’t know what we are feeling, it’s really difficult to know what we need, and so we stay stuck in an addictive pattern that rarely satisfies our deeper thirst for intimacy and connection.
Watch below to learn about the different forms of love addiction including sex, romance and relationship addiction.
