The Difference Between Self-Discovery and Self-Healing

It turns out that putting your eyeballs on something and actually fixing it, are not the same thing.

I used to journal endlessly on all the things that were wrong with my life, because I believed that by taking a microscope to all the piles of shit that existed in my life I could somehow make them go away.

So every morning I'd wake up early, grab my trusty journal and my favorite pen and write down all the reasons why I did what I did back then, and why all the other people in my life did what they did to me.

For a while, I'd feel a little better after my morning journaling sessions. But then I realized that all the journaling I'd done hadn't made a meaningful change in the painful emotions I felt around those old memories. And it definitely hadn't done anything to change the compulsion I felt to repeat the same kinds of problematic choices that got me into that problematic situation in the first place.

It wasn't until I realized that there's a big difference between self-discovery and self-healing, and understanding why the people who hurt me did what they did, doesn't do anything to stop me from feeling hurt about it now.

So how can we put an end to the problematic pattern that's causing your emotional pain?

In this episode I'll show you how to combine the right kind of self-discovery with the kind of self-healing practice that really works.
