The Addictive Environment

Addictive highs, practices, behaviors

Allow control, reduction, avoidance

Of the relational pain, vulnerability, risk

Involved with meeting real needs

Through true intimacy

By providing false fulfillment

Of acceptance, approval, affirmation,

In a predictable, risk-free, safe environment

Where there is no rejection, worthlessness, abandonment

But unfortunately...

An environment lacking true understanding, joy, love.
