I've worked with many love addicts who have had countless relationships that were full of nothing but pain and disappointment.

Their relationship history created a belief within that healthy love "isn't really out there, it doesn't exist, and is certainly not possible for me". If you feel this too -- I have a message for you: "don't buy into the lie".

The lie that you can't have a happy, fulfilling love relationship is your love addiction talking, period.  Having a healthy, loving love relationship IS possible my friend.

A solid, meaningful, focused recovery path will help you break distortions like this one.

Having a Healthy Love Relationship really is possible.
