Are you becoming a slave to pills, alcohol or pot?
What many people don't understand is that sensitive, kind and caring people are more likely to become hooked on painkillers, narcotics or any type of "feel good" substances. "I've been a psychologist for 20 years," says Mark, a friend of ours. "People who are aggressive and harsh don't seem to be as susceptible to going down the drug road." Those who abuse substances are typically more sensitive to their surroundings and to other people's opinions, Mark declares.
"Think of artists, writers and musicians, for example," says Mark. "They open themselves up to absorbing life. I know many who are better at their respective crafts because they are open to deeper thoughts, feelings, beauty. But, they can feel the sting of criticism very deeply."
It's important to toughen up by learning to think wisely. Whatever is digging into your soul - prompting you to numb the pain - is probably a series of bad thoughts and experiences.
Changing means you've got to get a new perspective on how you talk to yourself.
