I’ve noticed that many of us sensitive folk develop addictions to help numb or pacify our emotional pain.
It makes sense to me. We often feel others' pain acutely too.
My addiction, given my Danish and English DNA, was sugar.
I needed some sweetness in my life and whenever I got stressed, especially in college, I went for the Ding Dongs.
(Do you know Ding Dongs? They are/were chocolate-covered hockey pucks, basically.)
The good news is that the more I give myself some Love, the less I need sugar to give me sweetness.
Love gives me the sweetness now.
I’m not perfect. I don’t avoid sugar or use my will power to keep it at bay. I still have some sometimes.
And even overdo it occasionally. BUT less and less often.
I’m good with that.
I don’t feel the need to be perfect at anything anymore.
I’m much more compassionate with myself, when I overdo the sugar, and I find I’m happier.
My life is … like a box of chocolates.
Ha, just kidding.
My life is actually more like an upward trajectory, with a few downs on the way, as I find the places that still need some Love.
And I attribute much of my life’s healing to Tapping.
Tapping clears the old pain, and related addictions - with practice - and allows room for more balance and good health.
I made a video that explains how to Tap, and its benefits.
And let me know what you think. I'd love to hear. To your health, Judy
