HURTING OTHERS The devil made me do it. FLIP WILSON Love addicts are emotionally immature and find it easy to see their needs of the moment as a life or death struggle. When caught up in their obsession, they become very self-absorbed. In this state of mind they are unable to divide their time between all the people who want or need their attention.

Sometimes these obsessions are the remnants of a love affair that has been cut short by death, divorce, abandonment, or other circumstances. At other times, the obsession is the byproduct of unrequited, or forbidden love that has never been consummated. Whatever the circumstances, this type of passionate obsession always feels like a flame of desire that never goes out. There are several unconscious motivations for obsessing on and off about the same person over the years. Sometimes it becomes the love addict’s way of meeting his or her need for romantic stimulation in between relationships.

To my newest readers, let me say that there is hope for those who suffer from love addiction. Reach out for help and change. This is the secret to recovery.
