If money is considered to be root of all evil, then what would we classify as our addictions?
The psychology of human mind is ultra complex when compared to any other species on earth, so why does it love to tangle itself up in a destructive mode? Once more, why would it seemingly feel right to be in this place in life?
Let’s drill down and put addictions in a separate folder. Psychological addictions are much more prevalent then physical ones; however, people can have both. When someone is psychologically addicted, they are obsessed with doing, having, and idea of a specific concept swirls within.
If one is physically addicted, actual body craves, but mind can easily be trained that it also must “have it” in order to function properly.
Two main reasons behind psychology of addictions are fairly simplistic human emotions that we all have. Self worth and security are primary root reasons for our propensity to become addicted.
Example: An invitation lands inside your mailbox and many people that you know and don’t know are going to be there. Feeling unsecure about your abilities, you summon up courage to consume three or four drinks to take off edge and loosen yourself before event takes place.
This concept seems to work and now you don’t just do it for regular functions, you begin to use it as a crutch more frequently. Your workplace may be next testing ground or home.
Another example is when women seek out same type of man as a patterned behavior because they feel within themselves that they simply do not deserve better. This self worth can manifest itself into many variations of an addictive personality or patterned behavior.
What would happen if we completely abolished all of our addictions, whether big or small, serious or not? Would we be forfeiting a part of our very fiber, weave that keeps us together?
Not only can mind play tricks on itself and make it believe that it needs something, but it can also become lucid and understand that it can stand alone without assistance of external stimuli to artificially boost its worth or security.
