Addicted.

We are all slaves of our conscience and desires – The two primary things that have their influence over our lives. Our emotions for instance: anger, sorrow, lust, love we just can’t suppress them no matter how hard we try. Another serious factor that has complete and absolute control over us would be our addictions.

What are these addictions you ask?
Well yes, drugs are the easiest to get addicted to. That is more health oriented than I’d like for this post and It is mostly because of several other things in life that pushes one towards it.
This post is more about the more deadly, subtle addictions that sometimes we’re not even aware of. Leave alcoholism, anorexia, OCDs, plastic surgery addictions and other health oriented stuff out of your mind as you continue reading.

Let’s start simple.

An overachiever is addicted success cannot go through a tiny piece of failure and come out of it alive. I’d know. An invalid who is always excused and given special rights cannot survive in a world where he is treated an equal. An influential man can never stand in line. He simply doesn’t even know the way of life of the lesser mortals. A beautiful girl can never go without satisfactory attention in public. A successful person thrives on compliments. This list goes on and on and on so I think it is safe to assume that we are in a way addicted to our lifestyles. Maybe that is because we know only our life and learning to live differently might be hard but you have to admit that there is some compulsive obsession to have things going on the same way at those times when things fall slightly out of track.

These addictions are the little things. The less harmful ones. What you should watch out for, are the people. Every single one of us with or without a social life has this one person we just can’t go without. They may change from time to time. But they’re there! It depends on our individual luck if or not they’re good for us. Regardless. There is someone and they’re probably on your mind right now.

If they actually care about you and consider you to be something in their lives, then good! The sad part is, even if they don’t, we just can’t let go. Our minds are always smarter than our hearts, smart enough to fool it and at times we take advantage of that. Even when you know, so clearly that they’re not good for you, they don’t even care! You hold on to the good things that they do and convince yourself that it’s enough. THIS is the worst kind of addiction there is! And you just have to let go.

I know it’s hard. What you don’t realize is that it’s not really you fearing losing them, it’s you not wanting to be alone. You wanting the relationship. Because you’ve convinced yourself that you need it. Think for a minute. Just one. There was no relationship in the first place! The only person in it was YOU! Playing both roles. So it doesn’t really matter if they’re there or not! You can satisfy yourself regardless. At least you can save yourself some self-respect.

Choose the right people, the one’s who deserve you. It’s okay to fixate but invest yourself in the right people. I know I have. What about you?

  1. It is difficult at times to let go of someone. May it be a lover,friend or a member of family or even something inanimate. Separation is always the harder part of a relationship. You always know when to stop and let go and move on. But you don’t want to let go. You want to hold on until you’re right. You want to hold on until the situation resolves itself the way you want it to. There’s no alternative. You think you have to carry on alone without that person or the thing you though you cannot live without, but guess what you’ve been living without it already. Life isn’t a series of problems to be solved. It is a journey to be enjoyed and fascinated. Signs and messages are always there if one is looking for it.
