HAVE YOU DEALT WITH THE ROOT OF THE ISSUE?

Many times we wonder why we end up in the same situation time and time again. It is because we are not really dealing with the underlying issue. We often mask what we are dealing with. Ignoring issues and stopping certain behaviors does not necessarily mean that you have dealt with that situation. Never be fooled by the outer appearance. For example, let's say that you were an alcoholic and you stopped drinking to please others and to make a better life for yourself. However, if you never dealt with the issue that caused you to pick up the bottle in the first place, you may find yourself drinking again. People may congratulate you on your soberness, but you really know the truth . It takes alot to really figure things out. Sometimes taking advice from others is the right solution for your situation, but at other times it could be the wrong approach. If you don't deal with the issue, there is nothing that will ever take away the pain that you may be feeling. Getting to the root of the issue is very difficult sometimes because people don't acknowledge that something is wrong. However, there are times when people know what is wrong but they do not know exactly how to address it.We all have issues that we need to deal with, take time to address them properly.

  2. Nam, inorder to deal with painful and deep rooted issues we must humble ourselves and ask God to help us face the truth about ourselves, For example if an individual is an alcholic because they fear failure and uses drunkness to ignore responsibility, then they must get rid of their fear first. Additionally, counseling and support groups are excellent resoures to help individuals with any issues. Their are always somebody out their that have experienced what you are going through and can comfort and encourage you. It would be nice if it could come from loving and understanding family members, but that is not always the case. mom
