The truth is, we all want to feel good about who we are and how we live ...and when we believe in our capabilities and feel comfortable in our own skin we're more anchored and confident. We trust ourselves and the world around us.
But life can be challenging, and when it does it can shake our ability to stay on track, make the right choices, and handle what's in front of us. It's during these times that we can lose hope and our ability to make good decisions ...because, ultimately, on the deepest level, we fear that life will get bad and stay that way and inevitably we'll be helpless to change our fate.
So what do we do?
We either indulge in temporary pleasures, things that lift us up and away from our problems, a box of doughnuts, a few spins at the slot machine, a shopping spree, a round of cocktails or prescription drugs ... or we simply throw in the towel and give up, sabotaging whatever chance we have for things to get better. Why? Because ultimately we believe that life really never will get better, and besides, even if it could, we don't have what it would take to really change it. The problem is, that no matter the choice, either path leaves us feeling even more discouraged, alone, and helpless.
