When we open our hearts, our lives get better.
Addictions, especially sex and porn addiction, wreak havoc on relationships. Recovery can remedy this. When we begin recovery, if we are married or in an otherwise committed relationship, our process of healing brings a deeper understanding of both our own and our partner’s emotional needs and desires, at the same time encouraging and allowing both partners to become more emotionally intimate within the relationship. If we are not in a romantic relationship, recovery builds self-esteem and helps us make healthier choices about dating, sexuality, and (if we so desire it) the formation of a long-term intimate partnership.
Task for Today
Think about how your addiction created problems in both your romantic and platonic relationships.
