Obsessive Love Counselling
The Difference Between Healthy and Obsessive Love
There are many stages in a happy and healthy relationship and love plays a big part in this. In the early months of a relationship, many people are seen to be very romantic and deeply in love with their partners. A person can have persistent thoughts and feelings of love for a person, and they may want to spend every second they can with their partner. With many relationships, partners tend to lose this obsession and settle down into a caring and smooth-running relationship. Relationships can be seen to mature over many years, which can include friendship, respect and commitment to a person. With healthy relationships, each person are able to feel loved and cared for - they can get on with their lives with these feelings of happiness, along with feeling free and not restricted by another person, i.e. their partners.
However, on the other hand, we have obsessive love. Obsessive love has been at the forefront of media attention and many pieces of literature for years, and this has created a different look on obsessive love, a different look on it that we should have. With obsessive love, these feelings of happiness can become extreme, almost too much for a person. Obsessive love and jealousy that is delusional is a symptom of mental-health problems and is a symptom that occurs in about 0.1% of adults. Many people who suffer from obsessive love is jealously, wanting to be with their partner 24/7, giving them no freedom - always wanted to be by their side. This can effect both men and women, of all ages and beliefs. Risk factors for developing obsessive love include a lack of full-time employment as well as having family members who have psychiatric problems, particularly a delusional disorder.
