The link between addition (alcohol/drug/abuse)
and abandonment screams out! The genesis of many
addictions is rooted in familial or relationship
breakup. The deep scars inflicted by the abandomnent
cause many to look for solace in drugs or alcohol
However, any relief is temporary as the user inevitably
ups the ante till they lose control. Breakups will always
occur but the need to manage the relationships
involved (young children especially) is critical to
their future functionality.
Where does our insecurity come from? countless wayys
from the loss or abandoment by a parent, a culture
that rewards physical appearance, some dark
espisode in our past that planted the seeds of self
doubt…. Add a few of your own…
Insecurity! Jezz what an anchor, fills you with
self doubt. Its downright crippling. Saw a bit of
American Idol last nite and it was on display,
inhibiting some of the performers. Those that
were feeling good about themselves let it hang
out and it showed in some good performances.
Roots of insecurity are multi-faceted and I would
love to share my thoughts on it.
Who hasn’t felt insecure? Most of the people we see every day put on a show looking like self assured individuals. even the clowns in hollywood and the sports world fight for acceptance. With that as a baseline imagine those whose insecurity is justifiably highlighted by abandonment or abuse. How does that affect our lives?
