Truth about Love/Addiction
In life, we see addiction every day. It's shocking how many kinds of addiction exist. It would be too easy if it was just drugs, booze or cigarettes. I think the hardest part of kicking a habit is wanting to kick it. I mean, we get addicted for a reason, right? Too often things that start out as just a normal part of your life at some point cross the line to obsessive then compulsive and later on turns to out of control. It's the high we're chasing, the high that makes everything else fade away. The thing about addiction is it never ends well. Because eventually whatever it is that was getting us high, stops feeling good and starts to hurt. Still, they say you don't kick the habit 'til you hit rock bottom. But how do you know when you're there? Because no matter how badly a thing is hurting us, sometimes letting it go hurts even worse... And that's the hardest thing because it's the truth. The truth is painful. Deep down, nobody wants to hear it, especially when it hits close to home. Sometimes we tell the truth because the truth is all we have to give. Sometimes we tell the truth because we need to say aloud to really hear for ourselves and sometimes we tell the truth because we just can't help ourselves.
