What’s Love Got To Do With It?
At Rio Retreat Center at The Meadows, one of our most popular
intensives is the Love Addiction/Love Avoidance workshop. The
people that attend are often in severe Love Addiction withdrawal—it
is real and it is gut-wrenching. Or, for those who are love avoidant,
they have found that the pain of enduring loneliness has
superseded the fear of being consumed in a relationship.
How Your Love Life Replicates Childhood Dynamics
The Meadows Senior Fellow Pia Mellody, author of Facing Love
Addiction, coined the terms “love addict” and “love avoidant” and
detected the cyclic dance between the two. Both of these conditions
are considered attachment disorders that are borne out of
childhood pain. Unintentionally, love addicts and love avoidants
attract one another like magnets.
It comes with the territory. Parents who use a child to meet their
emotional and/or physical needs create enmeshment. Conversely,
parents who deny their children basic needs and/or emotional
needs such as affirmation, nurturance, and proper limit-setting
create neglect and abandonment.
