How can you travel to the ends of the world and not pause to enjoy the views?
Feeling isolated, separated, and disconnected are hallmarks of sex and porn addiction. As recovering sex and porn addicts, many of us say we’ve felt alone for as long as we can remember. A powerful way for us to realize we are not alone and that we are in fact part of a vast interwoven universe is to spend time in nature. Whether it’s something as simple as a walk in the woods or as major as a trip to the Grand Canyon, nature shows us that we’re all in this together. Birds need trees for their nests, trees need soil to grow in, soil needs worms to churn it and nourish it, etc. Any look at nature, no matter how simple, shows us that interdependence rather than isolation is the natural state of being. This can be a helpful lesson for us to learn and implement as part of our recovery.
