Addicted to Emotions

Besides having a sugar addiction, I have discovered that I can sometimes be addicted to negative emotions. When withdrawal sets it then I seem to interpret an experience in a way that will feed my addiction to those negative emotions. For example, I think I sometimes crave feeling sorry for myself (because by golly, no one else will! Boo hoo!) and so then I will read into a situation a reason to start feeling that emotion. I know it's weird but it is the honest truth but now that I know that I will focus on getting more kudos from positive emotions so that I will start seeing everything in a more joyful way. I want to become addicted to joy instead.
