So how is it that you take a risk, set sail from a comfortable Harbor into the Open Seas, in an effort to find Adventure.  Adventure that will bring meaning and significance and healing into your life. After all healing is nothing more than a series of Adventures in which we find and apply significant meaning to the people places and things in our lives as well as our actions and the outcomes of those actions.

How is it that our risk-taking behaviors, which often require a fuck you and the horse you rode in on Mantra and mentality, can be compatible with an I actually care and take personal responsibility set of behaviors. 

Do you know what I’m talking about?

Healing is an independent activity in which we, as independent travelers, set our own path towards a treasure that is worth more than silver and gold. We are the ones who chart our course. We are the ones with that unique Compass. Sometimes our healing Adventures take us in opposite direction of Those whom we love or where we thought we would be heading. In order to fully heal we must be willing to say what the fuck, I’m going in this direction. And when people prevent us from going in that direction we need to be able to say goodbye. Well that was rather polite. Better to say goodbye then fuck you, I’m out of here.

For most of us who do this, meaning set our own course and walk away from those who would prevent us from healing, we need to be able to cope with and deal with the anxiety that comes from the need to chart our own course off and our own Direction and at times build boundaries with those who are preventing us from seeking our true healing path. It is this anxiety that drives our behaviors which instead of leading to Healing lead to a trail of disconnected in dysfunctional relationships in our wake.

Finding a way out of this pattern of course is the first step towards mental Wellness or I should say maybe step 20 or 22.
