Obsession: All the injustices/ expectations

Compulsion: Bragging about burdens


Have you ever heard of someone talking about being hooked on unhappiness, or you have heard someone say before, “they are only happy if they have something to be unhappy and complain about?” People suffering from a misery addiction focus on all the wrong that has been done to them, and often talk constantly about everything burdening them. It may be difficult for them to see the positive aspects of their life, because of their constant compulsive reliance on all the negatives.
