We’re all stuck. More stuck than we realize. And here’s why: we’ve all been hurt. We’re all in action to stop ourself from being hurt again.
These actions run a wide range – from diversion to denial to fear. And beyond. We are addicted to the actions we use to keep the pain away.
It’s not surprising that these addictions themselves lead to pain. So, we are stuck in the pain of the addictions we use to keep pain away. That’s pretty stuck!
But, there is another way.
Since we’re in pain anyway, why not look at it? Why not take a stab at really seeing it? Why not see if we can make that pain go away?
If we can address the original pain, we can let go of the addictions that keep us stuck.
This is healing.
