hits him when he sees his daughters friend and also when his wife sees he is having
a relationship with someone other than herself, that is not real. Felix becomes very
confused. He had just told Auggie he loved her and she told him the same. Then all
hits the fan.
So I think some people would feel a sense of loathing. That is what I mean by addicted.
People that are addicted to drugs, often at some point have self loathing for what they
are addicted to. This becomes a circle. The more they loathe what they are doing, the
more they do it.
Where I lost you, I will give you a real life example....
I worked at a rehab facility for a short time in which 'wayward' teenagers were sent.
A teenager was a compulsive burglar. It wasn't enough that he broke into houses to
steal. Nope, that is not what he was doing per se. He would only break into houses
that he knew people were inside asleep/in bed. This is very high risk behavior, not
to mention very dangerous behavior. I ask him why he did this. He replied 'it's a rush'.
This is what I call misplacement risk. What he was doing was very very dangerous
to himself and to others.
What that kid needed, was that sense of excitement (rush). Instead of breaking into
houses after people went to bed, he needed a different and legal way to get his 'rush'.
There are lots of people in the world like that kid. They become addicted to something
that is not good for them or the people around them. This results in a lot of social issues
such as over crowded reform schools, jails, prison, high crime rates, etc.
That's what I mean.
