There is an interesting characteristic to the human brain. It easily gets used to particular types of chemicals being released while we are experiencing certain types of emotions. The brain then gets hooked on those chemicals, and wants to feed on them, again and again. And so, the brain creates neuro-paths for the chemicals it is used to. Always hungry for more, your brain uses your subconscious to create circumstances in your life in which you will produce more of the same chemicals. Your addictive brain does not care whether you are happy with those circumstances or not, it just wants to get its feed. The good news is, that when you stop experiencing certain type of emotions, there is no further need for the related chemicals, and so the neuro-paths wither away. Your brain will create new paths, to accommodate the new chemicals, since whatever state you keep repeating, becomes the new habit for your brain.
