41. You Don't Need an Excuse to StruggleDec 11, 2021
You’re struggling but you think you’re not supposed to struggle because you’ve been so blessed. You feel alone in your struggle, but you can’t tell anyone if you’re not “supposed” to be struggling in the first place. Is your struggle not socially acceptable? “Where much is given, much is required,” you tell yourself. You want help with your struggles but don’t tell anyone or ask for it because it’s not supposed to be there. You want to be open and honest but you hold back because certain types of struggle (porn) are just “not okay.” If you let yourself think “It’s okay that I struggle with this,” then you worry what’s to stop you from letting your habit run wild.
This type of thinking, although well-intended, is keeping you stuck in the struggle. Do you want to remain stuck? If so, continue this approach. If not, tune in to this podcast episode for some ideas of how to get unstuck and actually start working the problem once and for all. How we can help make it easier for our loved ones to get the help they want.In a way, regardless of our circumstances, every one of us has an equal opportunity to struggle in our own ways. Because each one of us has a human brain. And what if it’s meant to be that way.
