“One thing that addiction does, it freezes you. You don't develop. You don't learn the skills by trial and error of having experiences and learning from them and finding out what it is you want and how to go about getting it by relating to other people. You short-circuit all of that stuff and just go for the button that says 'This feels good' over and over again. So you can wake up, as I did, at the age of 36, feeling like you're still 17.” —James Taylor, singer and songwriter

When we face fear and troubled times, how often do we find ourselves to be completely overcome by the emotions? The anxiety and the pain and the worry become the ruler of our lives. We experience flight, fright or freeze while our fear increases and our worries consume us.

So what do we do about it? We need to seek hope because that is where strength comes from. We need to trust that we will overcome the obstacles. We need to have faith that support will be brought into our life to help walk us through it. We need to understand that life's battles are merely a challenge to walk through and that with courage and support, we will find a way through them.

It might seem like our story doesn’t change, but if you have been around for a while, you realize that your story — and other people’s stories — actually do change. That’s the reason we can stand to keep hearing them over and over.
