If you had better hair, more muscles, a nicer car, a bigger house, more money, etc., THEN you would be happy.
THEN you would feel like a man.
THEN you would actually enjoy life.
I used to think this way too. And it wasn’t just the conditioning of mainstream media and marketing that caused it…
Recently a client confessed to us that he deals with major body shame because of pornography.
All of the men in porn are muscular, have little to no fat on their bodies, and are rather...um…endowed.
So he can’t help but feel like something is wrong with him. “My body should be better” he tells himself.
Whether you realize it or not, porn reprograms your brain to new standards that are totally unrealistic.
This is not just true in its depiction of sex, it’s also true in its depiction of what it means to be a man.
When I stopped watching porn back in February 2016, among the obvious changes to my spiritual, mental, and physical health, there was another improvement that began to surface a bit later on…
I began to notice that I was more engaged in conversations.
I asked more questions.
I paid more attention to people’s body language and undertones.
And wouldn’t you know it… I was happier too!
Because while many would have you believe that your quality of life is in the money you make or the way your body looks…
The truth is that the stronger your relationships are, the better your life will be.
If you want to give your quality of life a SERIOUS boost by quitting porn, book a time in my calendar and let’s chat.
