Neurosis a replacement for legitimate suffering.
Addiction is as well.
The worst form of addiction occurs by placing a restriction, a need, on external circumstances.
Neediness of another is the worst form of addiction, the afflicted knows this all too well.
But like all addicts, when their addiction is of the worst sort they’ll never admit it.
Suffering means dying to the self, or being vulnerable. It’s the last thing addicts must face.
Though vulnerability liberates the soul, some would rather die than do it.
Damn the Ego is a Bitch!
Can’t I just point my finger at someone more obvious than I?
