WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES OF EXERCISING STICK-TO-ITIVENESS, GRIT, PERSISTENCE, AND PERSEVERANCE, IF THESE REQUIRES IGNORING ONE’S OWN THOUGHTS, FEELINGS, NEEDS, AND PHYSICAL SYMPTOMS/SIGNALS?

SAILING ACROSS A SMALL LAKE IS DIFFERENT THAN SAILING ACROSS THE OCEAN. IT’S NOT JUST THE DISTANCE, TIME, OR RISK, BUT THE RELIANCE ON THE SIGHTING OF A PHYSICAL GOAL VERSUS GUIDING BY A MENTAL GOAL…THE ABILITY TO VISUALIZE WHAT IS NOT NEAR OR IMMEDIATELY APPARENT. WE ARE IN A SPECIAL PLACE, WHEN WE HAVE A SENSE OF HOPE, ADVENTURE, AND PERSEVERANCE, EVEN WHEN THERE IS NOTHING TO ASSURE US THAT WE ARE ON THE RIGHT PATH, AND NOTHING VISIBLE TO DRAW US FORWARD.

ALL FORMS OF ADDICTION AND MENTAL ILLNESS LEAVE AN INDELIBLE MARK THAT CAN DISABLE US AS WELL AS ENRICH OUR LIVES AND ENRICH THE LIVES OF OTHERS.

You may just become a good EGG ( Empathic, Grateful, and develop Grit). Charles Tadros M.D. April 20, 2021 St Louis, Missouri
