03-11-21 Being Healed By Your Compulsions
We are all compulsive to some degree. We turn to drugs, alcohol, food, shopping, work, sex, the Internet, busyness, self-judgment, and chronic worry in order to numb out our pain, sadness, grief and shame. And when we try to control one compulsion, another seems to take over. You stop smoking, and you find yourself overeating. Or you let go of drinking and you end up compulsively shopping. Why? Because what you try to control controls you. In other words, what you resist persists. Rather than seeing your compulsions as ‘the enemy,’ Mary invites you to develop a new relationship with them so they become guides that will heal you and bring you back to a nourishing relationship with yourself and with Life.
