Are Relationships Your Drug of Choice?
Pick your poison, Friends! We all get addicted to the feel-good high of certain habits or hobbies… but what if your drug of choice is relationships?
Everyone has something—something that helps the not-so-good times feel just a little bit better, including you.
Maybe it’s a bowl of rocky road ice cream or a glass of red wine after a challenging day at work.
Some seek exhilarating, semi-dangerous experiences to get the juices flowing and feel the thrill of tempting fate.
Others dabble in recreational drugs to temporarily escape the realities of life.
Or maybe it’s the rush of pushing your physical limits on a strenuous hike or workout.
And let’s face it, some just prefer the euphoric rush of buying that new pair of shoes or latest electronic gadget.
The common denominator of these tiny escapes are that they all are intended—at least in the described method of use—to alter your mood or experience of life, some slightly, and some in more profound, sometimes permanent ways.
So what about relationships? Can connection to others provide the same level of check-out and shifts in the way you feel?
You’re darn right they can. And I am betting that some of you have never considered or taken a close look at how relationships function just like the rest of them—like a drug.
