Love Addiction = Self Abandonment
Change is ABSOLUTELY possible.
We rarely are unable to participate in a mature love relationship before we develop the ability to provide ourselves self-respect and self-love. An obsession with anything such as a relationship (the drug) outside the self is an extremely unhealthy coping mechanism that does little in meeting one's own needs and wants; especially in the long run. It does provide a distraction from dealing with the inner self- however, only temporarily.
Change is to human life what the metamorphosis is to the caterpillar. It is the inevitable cycle of life. If there is no change, there is no life. If you are love addicted, change won't happen by itself.
You can't just say, "I'm going to stop picking unhealthy, avoidant, narcissistic partners" ... sorry, it just doesn't work that way.
Most changes begin in the mind with a willingness, a desire, then a decision- then action. This changes your attitude, which changes your feelings, which changes your life. It is the proverbial ripple effect.
Changing includes both outer modifications of behavior and an inner shift in values, and thinking patterns- including eradicating our inner shame-based tapes (messages/false beliefs), which we unknowingly internalized long ago- then, carried this shame into adulthood. Until we make these shifts, we continue to hold onto the lies, distortions, and false beliefs about ourself, relationships, even the world.
The positive changes you can make in recovery will be based on real experience, valuable insights, and powerful recovery tools.
