Toxic Relationship: Depleted?

In Uncategorized on March 13, 2013 at 6:14 AM

 “We can get addicted to relationships in the same way we get addicted to substances. When we get love, acceptance and validation, our bodies and minds respond in ways that mirror the same endorphin rush that a person gets from cocaine. This drug-like addiction is what makes toxic relationships so hard to break away from. We think we need the approval, validation and love of a person who once gave it to us. We keep chasing the original high, hoping it will come back to us. We deny the truth of the situation, because it’s painful.” Be willing to admit there is an issue, limit your time and exposure to certain people who trigger negative emotions in you, and believe in yourself that you fill find a more loving place. See yourself, the way God see you: loved, worthy, approved, beautiful, intelligent…

This video captures the very essence of a toxic addiction: note her pain, his grin, the struggle, the potential of getting away, reaching up to the One who can help raise you above the adversity of the duress…God is waiting don’t allow yourself to get depleted because God will complete you!
