Do you feel stuck in painful emotion?

The problem is, relationships don’t work the way we want them to.

People can be frustrating. 

If only they would change, right?

Things don’t go the way we want them to. 

It is too easy to fail at what is most important to us.

Faced with this it is normal and healthy to feel sadness, anger, fear, and even momentary guilt when we recognize our part in the problem.

But when these feelings are too big for us, 

         when sadness becomes depression

         when anger turns into rage

         when fear shifts into anxiety

         and when guilt falls into shame,

…now we have two problems:

our original problem and this huge mess of emotions that we don’t know how to deal with.

So we start doing things to help the feelings go away.

We isolate ourselves (because who would want to be around us), and disappear in days of Netflix binges or video games.

We start destructive behavior — eating too much, alcohol and drug use, acting out sexually, breaking things, yelling at people.

Now we have a new problem, the new habits we’ve picked up to try to escape our feelings.

Things are only getting worse.

How Can You Break Out Of This Cycle?

Isn’t there more to life than this?

 

Finding a good way forward

Know true love and acceptance

The God of the Bible knows your deepest secrets, yet he still wants to have you near him. Knowing what it means to trust God and to be loved by God changes your life now and forever.

Learn a new way to manage your emotions

By default, we spend much of our life avoiding our emotions. You will learn how to respond to yourself from a place of non-judgmental curiosity and compassion so you can get yourself unstuck.

Resolve past hurts

Especially when we are young we experience significant hurts but do not have the ability to process the pain. We carry these memories with us like wounds that have been hidden away. Resolving these in a healthy way frees you from the pain of those experiences.
