Primary vs. secondary problems

Weight gain, anxiety, poor posture, low energy, self-criticism, workaholism, strained relationships, control needs, smoking, drinking, binge-watching, gaming, gossiping, avoidance activities, retail therapy, anger, procrastination, indecisiveness, lying, cheating, stealing, body-image issues, impulsivity, and a superiority complex are all secondary problems.

Secondary problems are a manifestation of one primary problem, and that's an identity crisis.

When someone mistakes the painful experiences of their past for their identity, that's a crisis.

Defining yourself by a limited experience when you have a divinely unlimited identity, whether consciously or unconsciously, you're choosing not to receive the gift of your inherent goodness.

That's OK, if rejecting the gift wasn't an option, receiving it would have no significance.

Once you know who you are apart from what's happened to you, your secondary problems fall by the wayside.

"The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing." Stephen Covey
