Do You Have a Compulsion? How Can You Make it a Gift?
Monday, October 26, 2015
Most of us have been at battle with our compulsions. Whether it’s overeating, overdrinking, overexercising, or overspending, it seems that the more we fight our compulsion the more it fights us.

When we take away that fight or flight reaction, what is left? Compassion, patience, and finally, being enough.
