Inordinate 1100 Words You Need

/ɪˈnɔː.dɪ.nət/ (adj)

beyond reasonable limits in amount or degree, unreasonably large in size or degree, excessive, unrestrained, undue, unwarranted, immoderate, lavish, extravagant, unreasonable, disproportionate, exorbitant, unconscionable

An inordinate affection is an unhealthy and obsessive attachment to a person or thing that manifests through uncontrollable “love”. This— is abnormal. We may be tempted to say it is acceptable, because we all have friends who drop us the moment they meet someone- but there is a point where it develops into something else. An inordinate affection promotes isolation and secrecy. People may even say to you that the way you love that person is scary. We tend to rationalize things away (i.e., no one understands) but that is a piece of feedback that could provide the clue that something is forming in your relationship that is not okay. The more you sacrifice to be with this person, to keep him happy and with you, the less honest you can be to yourself about those sacrifices. We also tend to make up excuses for bad behaviour to explain it away, or worse, we cover it up. All of this moves us further away from our families and deeper into an abyss of desire that can never be met.
