• Addiction •
Every time you promise yourself “no I won’t do it anymore, no no, it’s the last time”, and then you go back and do the ritual of re-traumatizing yourself, over and over again, trapped in that vicious circle. And the circle becomes unbearable when shame appears. “Why did I do this again?” and that dark, blazing trail of thoughts starts bumping in... reinforcing the agony and distress..
Addictions are not only substance. There’s always process addiction, like for instance exposing yourself to painful relationships, searching for love and appreciation in all the wrong places.
Why wrong? But of course because the inner void can turn into an abundant well, through one and only way; SELF-love. Not outside yourself, but INSIDE.
However, self-love is a lifelong process. It has ups, it has downs, therefore it needs continuity and commitment.
To all those who struggle, but don’t give up, to all those who fight THE fight and lose, to all those who look for hope, my respect embraces you.
You are not alone, we’re all in this together.
