“If a thing’s worth doing,
It’s worth doing badly.”
—G. K. Chesterton
Imagine what it would be like if you could stop being perfect and enjoy the place where you arrive.
Parents, teachers, or significant others may push us to get ahead, come in first place, excel, land the best job, or work hard to have the most money. A problem exists with this line of reasoning.
There are losers and stress.
Because we do not achieve, we may experience shame, anxiety, depression or low self-worth.
What does frustration do to recovery? Negative energy exacerbates pornography addiction.
Viewing porn becomes a way to relieve the stressful feelings.
Forget other people’s standards.
Stop judging yourself.
Wherever you place in the race, even last, is perfect.
Three Steps to Sobriety
When you ever feel something triggering you, answer 3 questions:
- Focus: What triggering thoughts am I seeing; what do I change?
- Dialogue: What triggering words did I use; what words do I change?
- Mannerism: What is my physiology; am I behaving confidently?
A Prayer of the Porn Addict (a Quinzaine Poem):
Preserve me with sound judgment
I am safe
Proverbs 3:21 – 24
21 My son, let not them depart from thine eyes: keep sound wisdom and discretion:
22 So shall they be life unto thy soul, and grace to thy neck.
23 Then shalt thou walk in thy way safely, and thy foot shall not stumble.
24 When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet. (King James Version, public domain)
