Addiction is one of the easiest ways to get out of balance… and we can get addicted to anything, anytime.
When we are addicted, our focus goes on to one thing as the sole place we get most of our needs met:
Social Media Obsession (being on all day)
A man (Pining and obsessing about him all the time)
An infatuation (I can't live without him even though I just met him)
A relationship (I have no identity except through him)
Being a mother (My entire identity is my children)
Work (My whole life is my company or my job)
And that focus is taken OFF everything else.
And because we have a lot of needs, if our focus is on one thing, we either expect that one thing (or one man) to meet all of our needs, OR we neglect our needs and we become self-neglected...
Our health goes out the window—and we become tired, fatigued, broken down, irritable, unhappy, nervous wrecks… and we slowly begins to burnout.
Anytime we are burning more than we are putting in—we go into debt… and debt is NEEDINESS. We start to feed off of everyone around us, the man we are dating more than we should, we take, we drain, we show up irritable, self centered, and off centered.
And when we are in neediness ladies, we give more than we take and that breaks down relationships, love, intimacy and attraction...
Who is attracted to someone who is always needing validation, approval, etc.?
So Balance is the recognition that addiction can happen any time… and as soon as we are out of balance we become needy and EVERY AREA OF OUR LIFE begins to go into chaos, neglect, burnout, breakup, etc.
Balance is a key word for me in 2019… as I live a lifestyle where I prioritize self care, health, wellbeing, balance, needs met, rest, service, work, creativity, and all the other needs I have as a woman.
