Trust your instincts
Your instincts are your truth.
No, I did not say to trust your addiction.
We cannot trust our addictions, they are not our instincts.
Addictions take us to places of avoidance.
Instincts take us to a place of truth.
Generally when we find ourselves in an addictive state of any nature, food, people, shopping, alcohol, gambling, sex, toxic relationships, and so on, we are in avoidance mode.
Addiction = avoidance of generally pain and truth. Our honest true feelings and what we see.
The truth is too painful so we become addicted to avoid the truth.
Often it is said of addiction, is that the person has on their running shoe's.
And what are they running from?
