Guy – Congrats on reclaiming your personal power through the courageous work of letting go of much of the underlying negativity that drove you to addictions.
You highlighted an important point: the difference between addressing the underlying causes of addiction and merely focusing on strategies to stop using. If the things that made you reach out to numb yourself aren’t addressed and healed, you’d be driven to act out in addictive behaviours again sooner or later.
The point that people usually miss is how rewarding doing the real work is, as your story is testament of.
“…two things caused most of my suffering: the belief that there was something wrong with me, and the fear that other people would see it and reject me.”
These beliefs are also the root of a lot of my suffering in the past. In facing up to these beliefs, challenging them, working through them and seeing how much I had invested into believing them, I’ve been able to gradually find self-acceptance and stop sabotaging myself.
