self medication - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
The romance industry and the sex industry are caustic forms of self medication that society must wean itself from if it is to form positive cultures of healthy people.
Fantasy is normal and an important part of a healthy brain, yet under the influence of advertisers toward romance or sex ideals that objectify the potential lover, we fall into a toxic form of self medication.
When you can be strong in yourself, love yourself, and feel your self worth to have real validity - then you will be able to walk away from the self medications that bring such large profits to so many industries - beauty, romance, sex, luxury... when you can own your own ego, nobody owns you. That's real victory.
As you wean yourself anew from the "medications" of commercialism, you will find it easier of you resonate with what has made humans health for evolutionary time. You evolved to require the love and support of others in healthy protective and nurturing ways. The transition is challenging. Good luck, my friends.
