I have run into something new that is disturbing to me. There are certain things that you hide and it is to your benefit to hide them. There are other things that you hide that (although at the time you think it is the best course of action) will later come back to bite you worse than if you had addressed the issue or issues when the event in question occurs. If you, for the sake of discussion, get in trouble with law enforcement (which is what I obviously see the most of), then you need to get help. Whether it is from your family, friends, parents, or your spouse you need to get some feedback… you may not initially like that feedback because it is not likely to be positive feedback. But, in the end, these are the people that are a part of your support structure and if they truly love you as they well should, then they will be there to help you and point you in the right direction to get the assistance you need. Whether that assistance is counseling for emotional issues, substance abuse, advice from an attorney to help you through whatever charges you may be facing, and to be there for you as a friend or family member. Whether it is pride or shame that makes you stick your head in the sand hoping that the problem will simply go away with time is both prolonging the inevitable and will probably make things worse… plus it makes it easier for that something to sneak up on you and bit you in your butt when you head is buried in the sand and your butt is up in the air. I hope everyone is having a good Monday and if not… tomorrow is another day so give it a chance to be a better day than Monday.
