EP 22: Why do your Relationships Fail: Understanding Repetition Compulsion

Would you like to know one of the main reasons why your relationships may be failing over and over? Do you ever feel like you’re repeating the same pattern over and over again just with a different person? Same relationship, different haircut? Then this episode is for you.  In today’s episode, we explore a theory that Dr. Sigmund Freud called “Repetition Compulsion.” Even though Freud’s theories are from nearly a century ago, many of them are still very relevant today.  In this episode, we do a deep dive on how this theory can help explain why the heck we do what we do in relationships, and why we do it over and over again.  This episode will teach you exactly what Repetition Compulsion is and why understanding it just may help you break any hurtful patterns in your love life. In this episode we will also learn how to apply this theory, and how it relates to Attachment Theory.  Trust me, you don’t want to miss this episode. Tune in and make sure you let me know your takeaways by sending me a DM on Instagram. You must let me know if you’re also a Freud nerd like me! P.S. It totally makes my day when you screenshot the episode and tag me on IG @drmorgancoaching - I love hearing from you all!!

It can feel “good” temporarily...But then you wake up, your head is pounding, your whole body is aching, you shuffle to the bathroom and you catch a glance in the mirror…You look into your eyes, and your eyes don’t lie. You see the pain.  And you realize that “good” feeling was actually an escape that simply took you further away from yourself...You numbed the pain, but it didn’t go away…In fact, the numbing you were doing, actually made the pain get worse. How do I know this cycle so well?  Because this was me. For years. After every break-up. I WAS PREVENTING MY OWN HEALING. Have you been there? Can you relate?
