Sometimes, we carry huge loads around without even thinking about it. These loads consist of harrowing experiences of hurt, disappointment and guilt from childhood to today. Eventually, it all adds up. When life's pain is too much to handle, we search for ways to cope and for some, that can lead to self-medication.
At first, self-medication may work. However, it then becomes all-consuming and loses its benefits. Self-medication becomes yet another heavy burden. Instead of helping, it becomes a massive problem for you to manage.
Just what you needed…. one more huge problem. And, over time, it gradually grows more prominent. Maybe it even gets to the point where you can't function. That's not what we want. We want you to thrive and leave behind your backpack full of river rocks (life's pain).
