Brigitte  Witzer - Joy Addiction Life


Addicted to recognition and validation – why we always give our best and lose ourselves while doing so

We are dependent on receiving acknowledgement and affirmation. While striving for these we often reach our limits, and then get help from alcohol or nicotine to extend this limit. Shopping or running marathons satisfy us in a way that mundane life does not. In short, we are addicted, and we don’t know it, because many addictions are inconspicuous and socially accepted. It is estimated that in Germany more than one in four people are addicted in some way or another – an alarming statistic. Then there are the relatives, friends, acquaintances, employees, and colleagues who suffer as well.

Brigitte Witzer exposes our hidden addictions, showing how they can destroy a good life and how short-term pleasure can lead to long-lasting misfortune. The exit from dependency can succeed only through an acceptance of life and ourselves.
