The following TED talk was sent to me by a follower. It is one of the best descriptions of sex addiction I have seen thus far.
“The biggest barrier to getting help for sex addiction is the secrecy and shame that surrounds it”
“He doesn’t believe anyone could like him, let alone love him”
“He doesn’t believe anyone could ever really understand”
“He’s just not that type of guy”
“How could I not have known”
“I don’t care what we call it, what I care about is…” those suffering in silence
“Sex addiction thrives in secret, and in shame”
“Stop making moral judgments”
“It’s not a myth, or a joke, and it is certainly not fun”
It’s time to stop joking about sex addiction… belittling it, judging it, or denying it.
The power of compassion allows us to face the fact that we are all fallible, vulnerable human beings, we all make mistakes, we all have regrets, we all struggle with difficult emotions…
