Pit Happens! - Top 10 Drug Alcohol Rehabs-Relationship Recovery | Christian Recovery | Scoop.it

Discouragement shows up in life. Discouragement shows up as skid row, the loss of a job, section 8 housing or in the county detox. Discouragement shows up with perfect hair-clothes and makeup – or while riding around in a brand new car. Discouragement shows up while living alone in a fabulous house in a gated community.  Discouragement shows up whether you are 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 years old or more. Discouragement can show up as a smile when you are asked how you are.

How to Get the Perfect Personality - New Life Recovery®

Once you get through a few decades of your life, there will probably come a time when you find yourself doing the exact thing that your mother or father did which you swore you would never do. Clearly our parents played a role in the development of our personality.

Nature and nurture relates to the importance of an individual’s innate qualities ( inherited genetic qualities from parents) as compared to an individual’s personal experiences (what one experiences in their environment) which cause individual differences in physical, behavioral and personality traits.

The mental health profession provides an overdose of information on addiction (tongue in cheek), emotional turmoil, depression and personality disorders, so perhaps it is time to explore what a Perfect Personality is—if one exists. As a society we seem to know only too well how to identify what is wrong with someone, so we must …

What the x#8$ Are You Talking About? | New Life Recovery®

What the x#8$ Are You Talking About? | New Life Recovery® | Christian Recovery | Scoop.it
Internet Marketing's insight:

Why is it that we like to share bad news and gossip? We all know that putting someone else down is text book psychology for low self esteem and lack of personal self worth. However, for some reason we just forget that because negativity is addictive. Our news shows are built on sharing bad news. Does it make us feel better about ourselves when someone is worse off?  If your life is not going the way you want, take some time to consider what you are talking about. Conversely, if your life is going well, your words are probably on a higher level of awareness – and you speak life, hope and success into your life as well as others.

The tongue is the smallest muscle in the body but it can perpetrate the most damage. Have you ever said something you regret, or then have to say that was not what you meant? Of course you have, we all have. In fact, most people do not inflict harm on others by brute force, but they can crush a person with words or gossip. Entire lives have been destroyed by such.

Man’s Attempt to Solve Spiritual Problems

Psychology is man’s attempt to solve spiritual problems. And the Bible tells us that when we justify, excuse, or label behavior it is only an attempt to cover up sin. Wow, I can see the Non-Christian addiction counselors reading this and coming straight out of their skin! They will argue that the The American Medical Association (AMA), defines alcoholism as a disease. They do and I used to believe that as well.

Fear Fuels Addiction - New Life Recovery® Top Addiction Treatment Centers

Most addicts do not discover that their substance abuse addiction is fueled by fear until they get into recovery. Working the steps helps one to see the dominant theme supporting their addiction. Fear fuels more addiction than anything else. So why do we have so much fear? At the crux of all this fear is the …
Internet Marketing's insight:

Man was not created to fear because God hates fear. In Genesis 3:10 of the Bible it says: 10) He replied, “I heard you walking in the garden, so I hid. I was afraid because I was naked.” Most of us have been led to believe that Adam was actually naked-without clothes, but he was not without clothes. Naked in this context means ashamed. Adam was afraid because he felt ashamed. When Adam ate of the forbidden fruit he experienced fear because he had sinned against God. Sin and a shame consciousness are synonymous. When we sin most of us experience the accompanying feelings of shame and fear. To combat these uncomfortable feelings addicts and alcoholics will use their drug of choice. Since God did not design us to live in fear, our natural instinct is to use any method we can to relieve it.

Body, Soul or Spirit - Which One is in Control? - New Life Recovery®

God desires for us to be whole and led by our spirit. However, since we are spirits having a human experience we are often led by our soul. When lead by my soul, I am more likely to over react emotionally to someone cutting me off in traffic, than if I were lead by my spirit. My response is quick and reactive because it has not traveled through my heart, or spirit first. When I respond inappropriately from my “flesh” or”soul” I usually feel bad later.

If I have cut my spirit off to such a point that I no longer hear it, I will not feel bad about my inappropriate response at all. My whole life will be run from my will and emotions;  filled with conflict and relationship problems that I will believe is everyone’s fault but mine.

People who are lead by the soul (mind & logic) think things of the spirit are ridiculous. This comes to no surprise to those of us working to enlarge our spiritual life.

When lead by my soul, I am more likely to over react emotionally to someone cutting me off in traffic, than if I were lead by my spirit.
