Love addiction is a painful expression of human love. Love addiction gains power over people with low self-esteem, misperception of themselves, negative self-relationships. Even in childhood, such personalities have difficulties in identifying personal boundaries in communication; it is not easy for them to identify their own limits in relationships.
Love addiction in men, as well as in women, happens equally often.
Sometimes we strive so hard for perfect relationships and the very idea of high feelings that we lose sight of what we really need to experience true love.
Love addiction (addiction), like many other types of addiction, is quite real. Many of us have encountered it at some point in our lives, even if we were not aware that it was her. By understanding the symptoms and signs that may indicate a love addiction, we will have a chance to overcome it and direct our energies toward building a truly healthy and lasting relationship rather than a painful attachment.
Like most adult problems, the prerequisites for a love addiction can most often be traced back to childhood. For example, if a child experiences violence or if one of the parents leaves the family, the child may later subconsciously reach out to people who feel safe with them. In adult relationships, however, partners should not play the parent-child role model. In harmonious relationships, partners support each other equally.
Low self-esteem, which also has its roots in childhood
It feels like an inferiority that causes discomfort. At the same time, such people think that only through a partner close to them can they feel their integrity. At the same time, they can suffer from the fact that they feel unworthy to be loved by a good person.
An unfortunate family
As a child, we form views on what kind of relationships we consider “normal”. If a person grew up in a dysfunctional family, it is most likely that this kind of relationship will be perceived as the norm.
Loneliness as a child
Children sometimes think that loneliness is their personal fault. When they grow up, they try to make up for it in every way possible.
Loss of ability to trust
Often after physical or emotional abuse a person closes down inside himself. He will avoid real intimacy and try to find petty reasons for romantic experiences.
Depression, increased anxiety, and other mental health problems may affect the ability to find and maintain healthy relationships.
