In this segment of Planet Love Match Radio, Jennifer Tapiero and Josh Nasar welcomed life coach and author of Stop Waiting For Permission! Steve Truitt to the studio. The three of them touched on a pretty tough issue: love addiction.
Josh is a recovering love addict. He consistently looked to other people for love and adoration, rather than feeling those things for himself. People who are addicted to love tend to feel like something is broken about them; like something desperately needs to be fixed. This may not even be true, but it leaves them on a never-ending search for love despite the fact that they keep coming up empty handed.
“Look at it as commitment versus attachment,” said Steve. “Attachment is grabbing something so tight that the only option for that thing is for it to wiggle away because it doesn’t want to be grabbed, but commitment is putting your hand out and just letting something be and saying I’m committed to love. I don’t have to have it. People who have to have love will not have it and even if they get it, somehow it will be sabotaged or destroyed.”
