Sex Addicts Cannot Tolerate Negative Emotions

Posted

Sex addicts have a difficult time managing their negative feelings.  Addictions are formed from a strategy to alter uncomfortable emotional states.  These strategies can include numbing out, going to extremes, using a substance or engaging in harmful behaviors in order to change how they feel.

A person who is emotionally competent can identify not only how he or she is feeling, but can identify the feeling states of those around them and respond appropriately.

Daniel Siegel, The Developing Mind, believes we learn how to handle strong feelings of anger, hurt, and sadness and how to attach to others from our primary caregivers in childhood.
