Is the person you are addicted to still on your brain? Can’t shake him? Despite all the misery and havoc he (or she) has caused, is he still a “part” of you? Sigh. Of course he is! And he will be until you do what you fear most…kill the thoughts and let go.
Think of it like this: we carry our addictions around in our heads and our hearts so frequently, it gets to the point where our whole body adapts to those thoughts and we essentially grow a new limb, or more appropriately, a tumor. The person we are addicted to becomes part of us–a physical manifestation of who we are, an ugly, outward growth that wreaks havoc on our lives and our health (it works in reverse too, by the way. A healthy love helps you grow healthier!)
So…..any hope of changing at this point means drastic measures. It means surgery. It means severing the limb. It means slicing off the growth. That’s a hard thing to do, because guess what, at this point, it’s not like popping a pimple. Whatever measure you take to remove this thing, it’s going to HURT. It’s going to be MAJOR. Cancer doesn’t spread overnight, folks.
So, you have to ask yourself….is the growth that has formed on your body and soul jeopardizing your health? Your inner and outer beauty? Is it endangering your very existence? If it is, then the risk of REMOVING the GROWTH is worth the potential pain, if it means saving your life.
Recognize a bad relationship for what it is. Cancer! And then, take the appropriate action to fight it and get healthy.
