Listen in to Free Your Mind Projects Radio Show in which I discuss sex addiction and healthy sexuality in this segment. This conversation was spurred by the sudden exposure in 2013 of the destructive sexual behaviors of public/political figures such as former US representative Anthony Weiner, San Diego’s former Mayor Bob Filner, and Eliot Spitzer (former New York Governor).
In this segment, we discuss the difficulty of defining “sex addiction” and what it means to have one. Additionally we talk about treatment options for someone who is struggling with compulsive sexual behaviors and the effects and treatment options for partners/spouses.
“The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination.”
– Carl Rogers
Life throws us obstacles every day. Sometimes we are able to overcome them on our own. Other times however, it is harder to move through them without support. When life becomes overwhelming and there seems like nowhere else to turn, therapy can be a helpful option. To some, therapy seems scary, uncomfortable, strange, or even stigmatizing. But overall, it takes courage to seek help or to make a change.
Therapy can also be helpful if you just feel a little stuck in life. It is not always about rooting out deeper issues. It can be used as a guide to make decisions that have been weighing on your mind.
Basically therapy is time set aside for you and what ever you want to do with it. Create a space that is your own, and live the life you want.
