Our Latest Article! Sex Addiction Abuse

“Out of suffering have emerged

the strongest souls;

the most massive characters

are seared with scars.”

— E. H. Chapin

Gratitude Removes Pain

What do you do with suffering?

Do you hate yourself?

Do you shame yourself?

Do you turn to your sex addiction and abuse yourself?

When a person acts out, they feel pain.

She uses pain to cloak negative emotions.

We cannot push negative energies down.  We allow them to surface.

Once they surface, we ask our High Power how to replace negative feelings with good.

In a 12-step program, the first step is realizing that we are powerless; the second is understanding that a Higher Power greater than ourselves will restore us to sanity.

Let negative emotions surface and ask God what to replace them with; a positive emotion.

Example:

You feel despair. You ask, “What do I do to find hope?”

You feel depressed. You ask, “What thoughts make me feel happy?”

You feel overwhelmed. You ask, “How can I relax and enjoy the moment?”

The previous questions are just examples.

You ask your question to rid yourself of negative feelings, and an answer will come to you.

Thanks,

Dale

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.
