Triumph Over Addiction and Self-Abuse
October 23, 2014
Hosted by Dr. Paula Joyce
Self-abuse comes in many forms, including, but by no means limited to, addictions to alcohol, food, abusers, drugs and self-criticism. As a friend, life coach, counselor, family member or colleague, it is exceedingly difficult to watch someone engage in self-destructive behaviors. Most of us want to make the person better or help them change. The fact is that unless they choose to save themselves, no one can save them. As we discussed in our last show, that path often leads to hurting ourselves because we put the well-being of the abuser above our own physical, mental and emotional health. The path to healing always requires that the self-abuser admit the truth to themselves and to the people who are supporting their healing. Then the real work begins of learning to find one's self, love one's self and heal. Join us Thursday as Brian Cuban brings hard-earned wisdom in sharing his journey through pain and self-denial to personal triumph over eating disorders, depression and addiction.

Learning to see life from a spiritual perspective can change the way we think, which changes everything. As we let go of fear, worry, regret, blame, anger, guilt, resentment, jealousy and shame, we can create the loving, joyful, prosperous, healthy life that we want and deserve.
The best or worst place to live is in our own mind. You will learn how to weed out the negativity and to be grateful and positive in word, thought and deed, resulting in your ever-increasing happiness. Uplift Your Life: Nourishment of the Spirit is broadcast live every Thursday at 8 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel.
