Earlier today I turned to Dr. Phil. On this particular episode there was a guest on. This guest had a problem with her diet and eating. She said she always had food with her. She said she even stored food in certain places so if she got hungry or just felt like eating the food was there. She told Dr. Phil she knew she had a problem. She said at one point she thought maybe if she started smoking she wouldn't eat so much. Interesting, isn't it?

I stopped watching the show after that, but what she said made me think of conversations I'd have with different people. One conversation may have been about boys. In this conversation a girl may have said in order to not think about boys she would find herself a hobby to be a distraction. This sounds reasonable, but this conversations about boys and the woman's mentioning of smoking in order to avoid eating brings a question to my mind.


People do this all the time. The woman on the Dr. Phil show was trying to distract herself from dealing with her eating problem by thinking about maybe starting to smoke. Single women always try to distract themselves from thinking about relationships by finding hobbies. People try to distract themselves from their insecurities by pointing out other's problems. Even when people ask for advice more times than not they do not want the advice.

So, why are we running from our issues? These are just my thoughts but if you don't want to hear any advice don't ask for the advice and definitely don't surround yourself with people who will give you advice anyway. If you know you need help deal with it. Don't try to run from your problems. It doesn't work. They issues always pop up at a later date.

Last but not least LIVE YOUR LIFE...Deal with your problems and be happy. It's the best way to be.
