50 questions 1 at a time question 3

3. If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do?

This is such a tough question! Because why do we? I guess we do it because in order to live/be a member of society there are certain things you must do!

In recovery there are certain things you must do... Weigh ins - hate them, labs - hate them and stress for days, dig deep in therapy - it's painful but has to be done! But theoretically they are for the greater good. I think in all things IF the things you are doing is for a greater gooder purpose than it makes sense but if it's not than maybe we should follow the lead of the pups above and find a good lake to jump in (even if mom screams no)

+++what's something you like to do and you're not doing it often enough? How can you find time to??+++

You see...that is a biblical principal for me.
Why do I do the things I don't want to do and don't do the things I want to do.

Why do I ...dunno...binge or purge for example. I don't want to do that.

Why do I...not eat lunch. I want to eat lunch.

Why do we do th ethings we do not want to do, for me, is the nature of a fallen world. Something only a God can heal.

Why does an addict continue to do the things they do not want to so? SOMETHING tricks them into thinking that is what they want. SOMETHING makes them forget that what they do want is RECOVERY and PEACE.
