Welcome to episode 222 of the Love Live Connection podcast, Dating an Addict: Work it Out or Leave?
I am addressing a topic that is often not talked about enough: addiction. My caller today is in a relationship with someone who has an addiction and is unsure about how to move forward. We dig into her inner child wounds and the parallels between her relationship with her mom and her boyfriend. We also talk about the re-mothering she needs to do so she can heal the heartbreak and avoid falling into the pattern of attracting someone else she can try to heal her mom void with.
