Confusing Love With Obsession
When Being in Love Means Being in ControlBook - 2006
A close and revealing look at the inner workings of people obsessed with their partners to the point of destroying the relationship on which they have come to depend.
Some men and women attach themselves to destructive relationships that they cannot walk away from. They pathologically need to control their partners, using whatever means necessary, including money, sex, food, and emotions. They stalk, harass, and abuse their partners in an effort to exert control and cannot function unless they are in a relationship. Men and women who confuse love with obsession can discover healthy, loving relationships with others but only when they learn to have a healthy, loving relationship with themselves.
A must-read book for anyone involved in a dangerously obsessive relationship.
