The Deeply Rooted Problem

The Deeply Rooted Problem

And so we self-medicate. We change mates, move somewhere new, pursue a new endeavor, try a new restaurant, have a drink, go on a trip, watch some more TV, go to a movie – or ten – and then rent a few more, spend “quality time” with our spouse (or that hot new someone). We do everything we can think of to make this feeling, these thoughts, go away. And as we rearrange the deck chairs on the sinking ship that is our life, changing only the external factors of a problem that is deeply rooted in the very way we think our way through life, we grow more tired, more stressed.
