Uncovering the falsehoods about some belief behind the triggers are our goal. We have a power greater than ourselves that we can turn to in our times of weakness, strength and need.
The shame and fear of being found out about our “secret” addiction is what perhaps keeps the cycle going and keeps us from healthy relationship with others – sexual or otherwise.
Behind that is a fear of rejection: not being able to please someone, and not being good enough. This also leads to placing more power on someone else’s opinion of ourselves over our own.
