Sexual sobriety requires courage—courage to face the world without the emotional shield of sexual addiction.
As sex addicts, we engage in our addiction not to have a good time, but to escape from life and the emotional discomfort it sometimes brings. However, we cannot selectively numb our emotions. When we shield ourselves from pain by escaping into sexual fantasy and behaviors, we also shield ourselves from joy, beauty, and intimate connection. It’s a terrible trade-off.
Just for Today
Be courageous and choose to experience your feelings—all of them, both good and bad.
