When we have a child or life partner who has a problem with alcohol or other drugs, we can feel like we are losing our mind. We can get headaches, stomach pain or additional physical ailments. Learning how we can become part of the solution not only relieves our own suffering but increases the likelihood of the one suffering with addiction to find help for themselves.
We may have trouble sleeping or relating to others, because we experienced violence in our past. We may have had a chaotic and painful childhood. These problems can change. We can all learn to calm ourselves and change beliefs deep inside that keep us from love and meaningful work.
Are you doing work you love? How are you doing financially? We live in times of great changes. The transformation happening in our world asks of us adaptability. We are required by many employers to have well developed social skills. Technologies like block chain, artificial intelligence and virtual reality are rapidly evolving our planet and our work opportunities are changing with it. Creativity and social skills are the human factors which set us apart, enabling to find work.
The feeling of falling in love can feel so wonderful; our life can seem full of promise. As time goes by, we must face the reality of our lives and the person whom we love. We may believe, "I have fallen out of love." The key to healthy intimate relationships is to calm ourselves internally as individuals and connect with our pleasant feelings; this is healthy emotional regulation. The better that I regulate my emotions as an individual, the stronger I can create a bond with my partner
There are times in our lives when we reach a spiritual crisis. It may be as a result of a loss. Someone in the church may betray us. We may remember our past abuse. These crises in faith may rob us of our spiritual foundation. We may become alienated from our former beliefs. I believe that we are not just a brain in a body. We are all spiritual as well as physical being. Relating to our depths can make all the difference.
We can changes our thoughts, feelings and behavior. Ninety to ninety five percent of our thinking is not conscious; we are not aware. Much of what we think, feel, and do is beyond our ability to change with will power. Yet there are skills we can learn to change how we think and feel. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing has been around since 1987. It is used all over the work to teach people to cam themselves and change unwanted habits.
