The Opposite of Addiction is Connection


Two things I've come to understand about addiction are the desire to not be present in ones life either due to circumstance (environment/ past experience) or not having enough meaningful connections.

You see happiness does comes from within but also comes from outside, experiences and relationships, therefore it is not always enough to push the self love message when dealing with avoidance behaviour. When helping addicts, its important to encourage positive relationships as part of the healing process and utilise compassion as a route to recovery.
