Infatuation & Traumatic Bonding

Awareness to break self-sabotage and sadistic looping


"Traumatic bonding also explains why you can become more infatuated the more someone makes you question their interest in you. Insecurity (anxiety) triggers adrenaline surges combined with other stress hormones and opioids that create that special biochemical kick of infatuation. Infatuation is a cocaine-opiate-like emotional high that intensifies sexuality and engenders the body heat of chemically induced passion. To stay high, abandoholics keep seeking uncommitted partners. When someone becomes available, your body doesn’t produce the love chemicals it needs to maintain this high. You experience this letdown as “feeling no chemistry” toward the person and you go into withdrawal, craving a love fix from someone who’s better at stimulating the chemical flow. Like a junkie desperate for a love fix, you search for another lover who arouses just the right amount of insecurity to get you emotionally loaded. When your body is attracted (addicted) , it tells you that you’re in “love.” When your partner ceases to be an emotional challenge, your opiods and other love-chemicals stop flowing and the thrill is gone. Hard-core abandonolics find it hard to create an emotionally sober relationship." - excerpt from 'Taming Your Outer Child: Overcoming Self-Sabotage and Healing from Abandonment' by Susan Anderson
