"The attempt to escape from pain is what creates more pain, and that’s the reality of addiction."

Sometimes I forget this.  As a result, I find myself buried in work and studies while letting my relationships and physical health flounder.

Maybe, instead of asking “Why am I neglecting myself,” I should ask, “What am I running from?”  For example, when I do certain chores, I find myself thinking about really depressing things, sometimes.  It reminds me of being berated by my mother while I was a child for not keeping the house clean enough and of the poverty that I pushed myself through as an adult.  That hurts, so I sometimes struggle with motivating myself to do the dishes.  Maybe I need to face that pain in a more direct and compassionate way.

I have my faults too. Sometimes the bravest thing you can do is admitting you have a problem and doing something about it

I cannot remember the books I’ve read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so, they have made me.
