In our fast-paced, quick-fix world, the initial thought is always "Give me pill. Make it go away." But the pills only allay the symptoms. They do not address the cause. Many people wonder why their pain returns, or never really resolves. It is because they have not taken time to attend to the cause.
Address the Cause of Your PainYou can help yourself to relieve your pain by addressing the cause. Is there a relationship you need to deal with or leave? Does a work situation require resolution? Are you living your life in line with your truths and values? Have you taken the time to identify your truths and values. Are you holding on to someone or something you need to let go of?
Many people do not heal because they find a reward by being in pain. It may be a way to keep someone in or out of your life. It could be a method of getting pills to numb your existence. It could be a good excuse for not moving forward. Look at the events and relationships in your life. Consider their effect on you physically and emotionally.
