The Perfect Partner with the Perfect Addiction

March 19, 2008 9:29am CST
Have you ever been in a relationship where you absolutely knew that your partner was the right one for you? I had this kind of person in my life, who was and still is a caring, sweet, and protective. He treats me like a princess, but there was a catch. He was abusing substance. Usually people tell one to leave him, but I clung on because I thought I could help him. But I changed him instead. I broke up with him a couple of times and now we're back together. I don't know if he is still using, and I'm too tired to care, for now I have myself to attend to. But I always wonder where that perfect partner is in him. Where did it go? I can still see the sweet things he does and says, and he still behaves like before, but all the problems and the fights seemed to have buried this perfect partner picture for me.

Hi dear. your perfect partner is buried in a desease called addiction. Addiction of any kind can turn the sweetest person into a monster. by now paying more attention to your needs, you'r heading in the right direction. now what you have to decide is, can you survive this relationship. if you decide to stay remember that as long as he's trapped in his addiction he cannot truly love anyone.
