Loneliness and Heartbreak
Welcome - we are glad you came for help!
Loneliness and heartbreak are two of the hardest feelings to feel. When we were growing up, we had to learn to protect against these, as we could not manage them. Addictions are often ways of avoiding these feelings, so it is vitally important now to learn how to manage them in loving ways.
Ponder the difference between knowledge and wisdom. Knowledge is something we acquire through various forms of education - books, experts, the Internet. Wisdom is a deep inner knowing of how to apply the knowledge in ways that support our highest good and the highest good of all. Knowledge without wisdom is the realm of the wounded self. Wisdom is the realm of the loving Adult.
