One of the best things I ever did for myself was admit I had addiction problems and accept that I have bipolar disorder. I’m by no ways saying this is easy to do, just that it was immensely helpful. Reality had always been something I avoided at all costs…including my soul, at times.
Honestly, it seems everyone is ducking out of reality these days. TV is a serious reality avoider. Plus, your even watching non-reality since science has proven that when you observe something, that thing changes. It becomes aware of the observer and changes it’s behavior. Be it a dog or a crazy Jersey lady or an amoeba, they all change.
So I’d imagine the same things happens with our issues. When we look at them, they, by law, will change. See? We can already put a dent in whatever we’re avoiding just by looking at it.
Admitting I had issues needing to be dealt with enabled me to take a huge leap forward. Cause when you admit it, can’t deny it anymore and you now have to take action. Or I guess you don’t. We always have the option to continue on the bumpy road we have chosen for ourselves.
What? I didn’t choose this shit hole of a life, you may say. Wellllll, I think you did. I was seeing a hypnotherapist for a little while. You may have realized by now, my fellow Blogvillians, I’ll try anything to grow better. During one of the sessions we went into my past lives. See, in a Polarity treatment(again, another modality for healing) I realized I had intense grief issues.
So we went back in time to figure it out. I lost a husband, Paul, and I felt guilt over not warning him of the impending danger. I held a little ceremony in the hills of New Mexico and honored him. He never blamed me, he said. Wow. Way off track. I whizzed thru another uneventful lonely life of my past. And then my most recent one.
The life before this one I’m in, I was a mess. Actually OD’d. So when I was born, I carried that energy over. I was born in pain with colic and poorly designed inner ears, leading to what used to plague me my entire life, ear infections. Not to mention drug addictions and bipolar disorder. And so I carried that last life forward for most of my life.
But then I saw a little glimmer of hope, somewhere…maybe in some child’s eye. We control our destiny. We determine our fate. And so I set sail for the land of Dapperdom. I paddled thru the seas with ease. Used to always have storms, but these days, these days heading to Dapperdom…boat doesn’t rock too much anymore.
So be real, what are you avoiding? Change it right now by confronting it. Tackle it! Take it down! Or perhaps…just admit.
Be Dapper Blogvillians.
A great reminder on facing things.
Thanks! I may or may not always face things…but it sure does feel good to do something about something you feel powerless over!
I really admire your courage and the way you express yourself. I used to avoid many things in the past till my whole emotional system got clogged. It’s when it exploded and I couldn’t make head or tales out of it. It needed a lot of personal work but I’m grateful that all these things lead to my spiritual awakening. Many love and hugs to you, have a wonderful Sunday!
And to you as well, thank you for all you do and all the beautiful things you share!
Please don’t lose hope. These testimonials are great, relaly encouraging stories and I’m so happy for these people’s success’ but I worry that they may give other people false hope and then more reason to believe they can never achieve peace. I do believe this may be the answer for many people, and possibly for you if you choose to give it another try, but if not, I do still believe? that you can achieve your mental health goals eventually (and med-free if you choose) & I hope you believe it too.
