Relationship Addiction

QUESTION: I feel the need to always be in a relationship. Is this a relationship addiction?


Are you in love with the appearance of being in love? Do you feel whole only when you are with someone who love you? Does being alone frighten you? If you answer yes to these questions, you may have a relationship addiction.

Relationship Addiction: What and Why?
Relationship addiction occurs when a person believes that they can’t live life without another person. Why would a person believe this way? Usually, a person who always needs to be in a relationship has low self-esteem. Such small value on their self-worth makes them search for another person who has a stronger character.

Relationship Addiction: Am I Addicted?
Do you find yourself taking on the traits and habits of your mate? Do you attach yourself to another person immediately without really getting to know that person or understand them? If you do, it is time to search yourself for the reason you are behaving this way.

Falling in and out of relationships frequently is a sign of seeking identity from others. Your true identity can only be found within yourself. A deep look at your actions, reactions, and thoughts is needed to fully understand why you have the need to always be in a relationship.

As you seek to find yourself, you will discover that another person will never make you whole. That emptiness you feel is really a deep spiritual need. Because the desire to partner with someone is completely natural, you earnestly desire a fulfilling relationship. The problem is, you are not necessarily discriminating about the person you choose for that relationship. This lack of discrimination stems from an intense longing to love someone and to be loved in return, but generally ends up being an attraction to love itself, regardless of from where it comes. True, fulfilling love is a partnership that grows and strengthens; it builds upon a common goal and future.

What do you think?
We have all sinned and deserve God’s judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
