Stopping Shaming Obsessive Thoughts
By Jim Hall, MS, Love Addiction Coaching Specialist
Obsessive thinking is involuntary, seemingly uncontrollable thoughts or impulses that occur repeatedly in your mind. Being love addicted, you may experience distorted obsessive thoughts that are self-shaming.
These painful thoughts become triggered by certain events or circumstances occurring in relationships with a partner or ex-partner. Love addiction withdrawal (withdrawing from an unhealthy addictive relationship) is often when love addicts have the most intense and painful obsessive shaming thoughts.
Obsessive shame-filled thinking occurs when you blame yourself inappropriately, put yourself down, criticize yourself, and even condemn yourself for feeling shame or even having feelings or emotions.
These thoughts may tell you how unlovable, unwholesome, and unworthy you are.
Of course, most if not all are irrational, false, and are lies.
