Notes To My Younger Self:

Notes To My Younger Self:

Definition of love: “an intense feeling of deep affection and compassion.”~Oxford Languages

Definition of obsession: an idea or thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes on a person’s mind.”~Oxford Languages

Definition of addiction: “a physical dependence on something or an interest in something to which a lot of time is devoted.”~Oxford Languages and SESH Naranon

When feeling compelled to get involved, in the spirit of being loving, remember that the meaning of addiction is much closer to the meaning of obsession than to that of love.”~SESH, Naranon

E.L. Chappel author of Spirit Dance/Storm Makers/Coming very soon: The Surge

Ask yourself this question: Are you feeling compassion and deep affection towards the person you’re helping? Or do you feel anxious, afraid, obligated, angry, frustrated and resentful?
