Nothing beats the feeling of falling in love. But falling into a state of dizzying attraction or over-attachment to an object of desire can spell trouble. Being out of control and too ‘high’ on love can be as destructive as an addiction to food, shopping or worst sleep. 

No one told me you can love someone and still be miserable. How is that even possible? 

If your stomach ties up in knots while you count the seconds waiting for a phone call from that special someone, if your eyes burn when you see a couple holding hands, if you suffer the twin agonies of craving for and withdrawing from a series of unrequisted crushes or toxic relationships… I’m sorry but you have an addiction. 

It is crazy there are those people you’ll always be willing to go back to, for you were made by the same colliding clusters of stars. There are parts of you that are parts of them as well, and that’s what keeps pulling you back in-just like gravity. 

Mmmh, the most dangerous drug I know has a heartbeat. 

Addiction to love could be pure hate.

  1. Well, it takes heavens to overcome an addiction. The most dangerous relationships are the ones we most cling to. Anyone can break the chains of addiction, just give yourself a chance to overcome it. Love has been painted with false names. Thanks for the insight. 🙂

  2. It took about a month of detox after my addictive “rebound from hell” for me to wake up and wonder who had hijacked my brain. After that, I knew I would never go back. That’s one of the good things about getting older – learning to stay away from people who are not good for us. The first step is recognizing that what we think of as love might be an unhealthy addiction, so you’re on the right track.

  3. I’m glad you did like it.
    It’s quite sad how we’re carried away by these feelings untill we can hardly reason or think straight. Healthy relationships are really needful but not of obsession. 😊😉

  4. I loved this post.
    A scary thought, yearning for someone like they are a part of your soul but they are oblivious. Regret is bitter.
    A hard choice, denying the compulsion & choosing a partner who will love you back in a health way.
