The first time I discovered Mr. Scabs and porn feels like a million years ago, our now, tween daughter, was still growing in my belly. I knew in my gut that the porn and lying and anger were poison to the small family we were about to become. There are so many reasons why I chose to ignore that feeling and justify the porn streaming into my newlywed livingroom. I felt stuck.
So much has changed since then.
As terrible and enormous as the problem of porn and sex addiction is, there's an equally healing and enormous amount of help, resources and recovery! The wave of dark is no longer encompassing and engulfing. This is PHENOMENAL! A phenomenal amount of hope!
I believe if you're an addict or a spouse in today's world, you are the luckiest addict/spouse in the history of the time. Never have there been so many caring, compassionate, successful people with research and knowledge, armed with tools and pathways to light the way to healthy sexuality and relationships. There is no reason we can't be whole. That wave of dark is met with a more powerful wave of light. We are so lucky!
We want better lives, fuller relationships, deeper intimacy but don't always know how to cross the bridge into action, the ADDO team can show us how to do this. I know most of the ADDO team personally. I trust them. In fact, I just talked to Amy Parks on the phone, you will love her!! She has her own story and understands the deep confusion and pain as well as the freedom of healing and how to get there. I hope you reach out and get un-stuck.
