...isolated manifestations of integrated problems.
Your lower back hurts, yes, though there are imbalances throughout your entire body.
You drink to get drunk, yes, though there are unmet needs you don't know how to cope with.
Your marriage is on the rocks, yes, though your relationship with yourself is strained.
You're full of anxiety, yes, though your disordered upbringing left you longing for a sense of safety.
You lash out and hurt others, yes, though you're transmitting the pain that was inflicted upon you.
All this to say, symptoms are often far removed from their root causes, and once you care enough to understand the root, you can fully and finally resolve the symptom.
