Are you Addicted to Bad Relationships?Written by Alina Ruigrok - www.love-sessions.com
Do you often find that you involve yourself in relationships that disappoint you? Are you not getting what you need and desire from people you choose to date? Does there always seem to be something missing? If you answered yes to one or all of those questions, you could very well be addicted to disappointing and bad relationships, setting yourself up for failure without even knowing it. There are ways you can determine whether you are addicted or not, and ways you can break addiction and start getting what you have always wanted from a relationship.
Before we cover symptoms of addiction, it is important that we cover dangers of staying in a bad relationship. Since bad relationships lack what one or both partnersí need, stress becomes a regular part of your life, as well a gradual lowering of your self-esteem, which will make you unable to focus on your career and personal life with concentration and care needed, in order for you to be happy. The constant stress will produce chemical changes in your body that drain your energy and make you more eligible for physical illnesses. Physical abuse in a relationship is obvious to cause a lot of physical harm, along with great psychological damage, but in spite of these facts, many people still choose to proceed with such relationships, finding themselves trapped and incapable of leaving. They find themselves depressed, on a search for some relief and unfortunately becoming depressed and possibly turning to drugs and alcohol.
So what are symptoms of this addiction? Ignoring truth would be one. If you truly know that relationship you are in is making you unhappy but make no effort to exit from it, then you are in denial and are holding yourself hostage in a situation you do not have to be in. Making excuses for your partnerís disappointing and bad behavior will keep you trapped and is another huge symptom of bad relationship addiction, especially if excuses you produce do not back up facts and are unrealistic. If you do finally build up courage to confront your partner to leave him or her but are overcome with fear and therefore back off from confrontation, you are a high and sure victim of addiction because no matter what you attempt, you find yourself always giving in and holding on to what you know is bad for you. Suffering from both physical and mental discomfort once broken up, unless you get back together, is yet another symptom of addiction and should not be denied or ignored.

SNIPERS AND RANDOM VIOLENCE By Laura Quarantiello © Tiare Publications Group 410 words Random violence, by its very nature, can't be predicted. The serial sniper shootings Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia are proof that anyone can be a victim at any time. The killing grounds are common areas such as parking lots, service stations, and street corners - everyday locations that we find ourselves in all time. Could victims in these cases have done anything to protect themselves? Could they have avoided danger? The one common denominator in shootings is that they happened in public places. Once you step outside protective embrace of your locked home, you are vulnerable. It doesn't matter where you are - your driveway or a shopping mall parking garage - you are equally at risk for violence. The only way to protect yourself is to be on guard and watchful - to listen to your intuition and realize that it can happen to you. Watch for these signs of potential trouble: ∑ Individuals standing alone or wandering around. ∑ Individuals in parked cars or driving repeatedly through an area. ∑ Groups gathered on corners, in doorways, alleys, or parking lots. ∑ Anyone observing you with more than casual interest. ∑ Anyone following you. ∑ Anyone hanging around your home, business, or car. Avoid: ∑ Shrubbery or trees that could conceal someone. ∑ Dark, deserted or isolated areas such as side streets, alleys, parking lots, parks, public restrooms, tunnels, or ATM machines. ∑ Groups of people loitering, especially if you're alone. ∑ Individuals approaching you directly for no reason, especially in parking lots and parks.
