Could addiction be somehow linked to past lives? Though I do not identify as an addict, I have always been surrounded by addiction in those closest to me. I lost my best friend and soul sister from childhood to heroin and meth addiction and the majority of my ex partners have struggled with different substance addictions to one extent or another. I’ve always had this innate need to mother these people. I live a very typical, law abiding, middle class life. It’s just so strange that every time I’ve had an extreme connection to someone in some capacity at some point they have had or currently are struggling with addiction. Could this somehow be a karmic agreement? Some kind of soul tie.
