Addiction never happens on purpose.
But when you feel everything intensely and battle intense emotions everyday, self-medication becomes the only way to survive― especially if you’re successful, highly-driven and focused on impacting the world.
You don’t have time for anxiety. You can’t afford for your productivity to drop. You need to be on your A-game 24/7. You need to be effective. Consistent. Powerful.
And it’s impossible when you’re constantly overwhelmed, overloaded, overreacting and overstimulated.
It’s undoable when you’re fighting anxiety, depression, distraction, frustration, hopelessness and rage every day.
You’re on a non-stop emotional rollercoaster and self-medicating slows down the ride.
It makes sense, but it’s not your fault. You’re not defective. There’s nothing wrong with you.
You’re Emotionally Sensitive©, which is the root cause of your emotional chaos. It’s the real reason you self-medicate to dull your emotional reactivity, struggles and pain.
But you know deep down that it’s not working.
It’s getting in the way of the life you want to live. The contributions you want to make. The world you want to impact.
Whether you pop pills, drink, eat, shop, gamble or binge-watch Netflix, you know the addiction is taking its toll― and hurting everyone else in your life.
You know if you continue down this path, you won’t just waste your potential…
You’ll end up sick, strapped and eventually lose everything you’ve worked so hard to achieve.
