Love or Neurochemical Addiction?


โฃ You canโ€™t eat, you canโ€™t sleep, and all you can think about is your ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜น๐˜ต ๐˜ง๐˜ช๐˜น.โฃ โฃ Our search for love and approval stems from a fundamental human desire to avoid self rejection. โฃ โฃ ๐—ช๐—ฒ ๐˜๐—ฟ๐˜† ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜€๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ฏ๐˜† ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—ธ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ฎ๐—ฝ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜ƒ๐—ฎ๐—น ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐˜ƒ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ฑ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ณ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—บ ๐—ผ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—ต๐˜‚๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜€. โฃ โฃ It's innate but can cross over into ๐˜ฅ๐˜ถ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฃ๐˜ง๐˜ถ๐˜ค๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜บ quicklike. You know that never ending search for the Cinderella love story that doesn't exist. โฃ โฃ That right there is how an addiction to love manifests. We will do anything to get that hit, just like a strung out junkie. We will go to great lengths and make unspeakable sacrifices to get that approval and feel the safety of a relationship. We put up with insanity from ourselves and our lover. โฃ

โฃLove is a drug at a neurochemical level, being ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ ๐˜ด๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜จ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ๐˜ข๐˜ฎ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ, ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ, ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฐ๐˜น๐˜บ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ๐˜ค๐˜ช๐˜ฏ. Itโ€™s an amazing feeling, but it can also be a double-sided one. Why? Because that love can trap you into unhealthy relationships.โฃ โฃ Love can make you do stupid shit to maintain that high. Separation and doing what is truly needed for your growth and happiness feels horrible as you go through withdrawal from the ๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜ท๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ณ๐˜ถ๐˜จ.โฃ

During this period of withdrawal, doing regular exercise, being patient (time heals all wounds), and talking to close friends can help balance your mood state and make coping with the love withdrawal much easier.โฃ
