So often we only pay attention to ourselves when there is a crisis. We don’t take our vitamins until we get sick. We don’t exercise until a doctor says we must. And we don’t seek emotional help until the only answer in sight is drugs. Yet, I can’t help but wonder if at the first warning signs we sought help, just maybe we could turn things around before crisis protocol was necessary. It’s like Stephen Covey says, “have you ever been too busy driving to stop and get gas”. So often that is the case for many of us, especially our emotional health. Let’s not continue to wait until we are so depressed or so angry that we don’t even know HOW to get help, or we think our only alternative is drugs.
