If there is one thing that is certain in this life it is change.
We are all creatures of comfort by default. Those who are not have likely conditioned themselves away from their innate tendencies. The brain gravitates towards convenience and comfort.
Interestingly enough, the brain also loves novelty! This is actually the birthplace of many addictions and the reason why porn can be so invasive. New content, genres and experiences are paradise for the human brain.
This is why life transitions can bring about great excitement and great fear.
When guys join DeepClean, they have typically undergone transitions.
Sometimes they are exciting transitions – a recent engagement/marriage, the birth of their firstborn child, a career change, a new city. Other times, they are harder transitions – separation, divorce, getting fired, etc.
Whether the transition is a blessing or a challenge, it is often these changes that drive men to realize they must eliminate unwanted sexual behavior from their lives. Somehow they have caught foresight if they do not get free and they don’t like what they see.
Personally, I am smack in the middle of some more life changes as my wife and I wrap up our time in Jamaica. I’m feeling ALL the feels right now – excitement to go back to Canada, sadness to leave our family and friends here, anxiety/stress about traveling logistics, and some despair as my wife and I live out of our suitcases for a while before we move back into our house.
Over the years, I have learned to love it. To embrace the discomfort that comes with change. To find joy in the uncertainties. I’ve survived every single transition in my life so far, that’s reason enough to believe I’ll make it through this one too!
And guess what? You will too.
