Problems Due to Avoidance

If we have something we don't want to tackle or face, we keep ourselves busy and distracted so we can avoid it.

  • Avoiding self-care and exercise leads to long-term health problems.
  • Avoiding things that need to be done leads to stress.
  • Things left uncared for lead to those problems getting worse.
  • Our friends and family may think of us as unreliable.
  • We lose our self-trust.
