“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.” – Marie Curie
Many of the men and women I work with who are affected by pornography/sexual addiction experience intense feelings of fear. They fear that the addiction will never go away. They fear that they will be exposed to pornography again in the future. They fear that they won’t be able to resist looking. They fear their children will be exposed to pornography. The list goes on.
The fears are understandable. The toll that pornography/sexual addiction exacts on individuals and families is profound and it most certainly grabs the attention of those affected by it.
However, fear is something that makes it harder to fight this dreaded scourge.
Individuals who work to understand this problem become better able to overcome it and prevent it from affecting themselves and those they love. These same individuals are able to overcome their fear and discomfort of this topic and they learn how to talk about it with their children and other loved ones.
