“I am seeking, I am striving, I am in it with all my heart” — Vincent Van Goth

The One Question: Am I into living life with all my heart, or do I strive to satisfy my sexual addiction?

After I read Van Goth’s quote, I had to answer the question.  A hundred people could answer the question 100 different ways.

For me, here is my short answer, well, not entirely short.

Throughout the years, approximately 50, I tried to use my talent. Yes. I said, “Try.”  Trying was all I could do because my sexual addiction robbed me of the positive energy that I needed to perform my talent with all my heart.

My addiction grew worse and worse.

I gave my heart to videos and pictures that offered me no love; young girls with young or older men, women and men, women with women, men with men, or humans with whatever.

Disgusting images that I once thought were impossible for me to view turned cravings into an obsession.

I became impoverish and empty.

I felt hopeless.  The pain was intense.

I then prayed for help.

“O Lord, for I call to you all day long. Bring joy to your servant, for you, O Lord, I lift up my soul” (Recovery, 1993, Psalm86:6 & 7).  I felt his compassion. I experience hope.

Now, I am in recovery with all my heart.  Recovery is a daily habit of good choices

God, you enrich my life with peace. You, O God, are “an expansive spiritual experience” (Booth, 2009, p. 383).

In the year 1971 I became a store manager at age 19. I discovered I had a gift for mentoring. I gave one on one coaching, instruction and teaching with ease. And, I loved it. However, I had a problem that held me back from achieving my full potential. I was addicted to porn. When I was going through my puberty years in life, I found pornography (adult magazines) in my Dad's closet. I was hooked. I had my ups and downs throughout my life: Ups, when I was off of porn and using my gift: and, Downs, when I was using porn. Porn captured my attention, holding me back. I found the secrets to breaking free from porn. Like anyone else, I have to work at keeping my emotions positive, every day, to stay free. Limiting emotions--fear, doubt, hate, lust, sloth, pride, any emotion that kills joy. Joy is the ultimate weapon against porn. You have it; porn loses its hold on you. I dedicate this blog to those who are looking for ways to end pornography in their life. To Your Peace, Power and Plenty, Dale P.S. The picture above is not me. The photo represents all families free from pornography.
