Is it possible to go through life without an addiction of any kind? How do you think you'd deal with your life if you had to confront raw emotions directly without any way to evade them? I think about this frequently and I wonder if trying to go raw would make me tougher. Maybe at first I'd be gasping for air, feeling like life is choking me more than ever, but what if I came out stronger over time? I mean it's something I never tried before, so the results have to be different right? A different way to live? To survive? To cope? I'm just trying to find new ways to approach my life. Maybe that's what I haven't done enough of. I don't know. Anyone else feel this way?
