Our poor brains. They never stop, not even in sleep. It's no wonder Hamlet craved that dreamless sleep with such distrust, as even in death there's no certainty of what might come. And so, we drink to usher on that dreamlessness like a half-alive kind of dying.
Like being awake at 3am in the strange limbo between days.
Addiction was my personal purgatory, as though I was bound there alone in the dark. All the tiny monsters from my nightmares would cross over, blurring the lines between a waking hell and tormented, sleeping oblivion. I was never sure of which was worse as neither was better than the other; to be haunted and conscious, or blacked out and dreading daylight.
Because drunkenness craves darkness.
It craves it so much that it creates it. But not the romantic 3am sort of darkness, like the kind that used to call me from my sleep every single night. It craves the indulgent, thick and intoxicating kind of darkness that spills like ink into clear waters; overtaking it, consuming it, transforming it into darkness itself.
It creates the next-best-thing to the dreamlessness all addicts desire: a dead and numbing dullness, a sort of sensory blindness that leaves you sleepwalking through your life.
Like being dead, without the commitment.

The old idea that you can simply permanently change your thinking by deciding to has got to go.
Does re-framing work? Does replacing a "negative" thought with a "positive" thought work? Do affirmations work?
Not how you may think.
Re-framing, challenging "distortions" in thinking and affirmations have their place, but to get permanent change, we need to go deeper.
You see, every thought, feeling and emotion has a purpose. It's their for a reason.
And, there isn't such a thing as a "positive" or "negative" thought or emotion. That context makes it seem like "positive" thoughts or emotions are "good" and "negative" thoughts or emotions are "bad".
To suggest that "negative" or "distorted" thoughts aren't accurate depiction of reality totally negates the purpose of these thoughts and feelings.
Why? Because they aren't negative at all. They are simply uncomfortable. They aren't enjoyable. But they have a purpose.
To go beyond trying to modify the thought, we need to discover why the thought is there... and why it actually makes sense that the thought is there, based on your unique history and experience.
We never have a thought that doesn't have a purpose.
Uncomfortable thoughts and feelings are typically either automatic survival responses based on past experience, or they are wise wake up calls that something needs attention.
So, while re-framing and challenging uncomfortable thoughts is important, we must also honor them an listen to them.
We must find out why they are there in the first place, where'd they come from? And what purpose are they serving? And does that purpose line up with our growth and our goals?
Then we must help the parts of ourselves that think this way start to feel safe to release those uncomfortable thoughts.
This is where Trauma Hacking™ Coaching comes in.
To get to the root cause emotional trauma that created all these thoughts in the first place.
So, to change your thoughts you've got to heal your trauma. That's how you heal your life!
You got this!

it will always be the hardest semester for me because I was in the lowest point of my life during that time. I even thought of giving up because I couldn't go through it anymore. there were too many things going on in my life. I was mentally and physically exhausted. I lost all of my motivations to keep on going. I won't even feel like going to class and I had trouble focusing during my lessons. I was a few chapters behind. I had a tough time teaching myself the topics that I didn't understand. I did it for myself despite all the pain I had within me. with whatever I had went through last semester, getting a result like this is my fuel. it shows me that I can face anything in my life and I will stand still no matter what. all those pain and tears made me who I am today and I'm stronger than never. pain teaches us who we really are and let us know more about ourselves. it reveals our strength and that is when you will realise everything happens for a reason. I don't want to change my past because it had taught me lessons that will help me to achieve my dreams. i'm grateful, thanks God. #happy#grateful#writer#writersofinstagram#writing#quoteoftheday#motivationalquotes#studymotivation#dreams#goals
WE SHOULD FEEL ENTICE BY SIMPLER THINGS
In life we romanticize struggle, been busy all the time and money.
But how about the small things, the day to day little victories.
The days we are overwhelmed with kindness and empathy.
A home cooked meal or having the time to be with family.
All these “small” “unimportant” things are the backbone of happiness and we should be grateful for them.
So stop looking for the “next big thing” and be entice by the simplicity of life.
Sometimes that’s all we need to do.
