Is it love or love addiction?

When being in love means being in pain, you may be addicted to a person.  Your judgment and self-respect may tell you to end it, but you keep wishing and hoping he'll change.  

An obsession with someone who isn't good for us is not love but fear — fear of being alone ore financially insecure, fear of being unlovable or never finding someone else, fear of being ignored or abandoned.  We may deceive ourselves: "He really loves me, he just doesn't know how to show it."
