Here is a story, Marks story. Struggling with addiction is not an easy thing to do. From a cognitive-behavioral therapy point of view, Mark is learning that it takes serenity to accept that he does not control things outside of himself the he, she, it, them. It takes courage to change the three things that he does control his own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. And, it takes real wisdom to know the difference. As a take on what Aristotle has said about anger, I like to apply his words to abstinence: Anyone can become sober. That is easy. But to be sober with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way, that is not easy.  Please enjoy Marks story as a true effort to change ones thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

Losses that have gone underground for years, that have remained open wounds deep within the self, may benefit greatly from grieving out in the open with the support and understanding of others. We experience a loss of self when we relegate emotional wounds into a sort of psychic silence.
