Reasonable people try to stay away from others when they're sick. They do it out of mercy and kindness. They stay away until they are well, and no longer contagious.

Why is it that we let emotional issues go unsorted for years and years? When the emotional pain buttons in our lives get pushed, the fallout hurts the people around us at least as much it hurts us. It’s time to disconnect those buttons.
You know, the secret areas of pain that you keep hidden and hope that no one ever finds out about? I have news for you, people may not know the specifics, but they can certainly feel the painful symptoms.
If you aren't willing to get healthy for your sake, at least do the hard work of getting yourself sorted out for the sake of the people you love. You really don't want people around you to feel like they have to spend their whole lives walking on eggshells.
Don't delay. Get the help you need. Make an appointment with a counselor or reach out to get with a mature, trusted mentor. If you live in central Iowa, you could come to Freedom Ministry at Heartland Church. It's held the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 6 - 8 pm.
