When you have a loved one struggling with an addiction, it automatically affects you. Some of the most common related emotions are worry, sadness, or even anger. And once you are negatively impacted, you find yourself projecting the same negative behavior towards the addicted loved one. The idea is to release all negative emotions towards their addictive behavior which is the only way that you will relate to them better. And relating to addictive people with compassion rather than with judgement or anger, could inspire positive behavior in them. They could even seek for help. And I’m not saying that you become a co-dependent especially if you are in an intimate relationship with them. What I’m saying is that when you release the negative emotions towards their behavior, you will be more empowered to make better decisions for your life. It will be easier for you to protect your personal boundaries and move on especially if the person doesn’t want to seek for help.
Trust me: being emotional free and non-judgmental about their addiction will yield healthier emotions than being stressed about it.
Remember that if you are not an addiction specialist, or counselor, you can not help them.
