Adversity in life often leaves us with temporary pain, sometimes even long-term hardship. This work speaks to the ways that we choose to so-frequently deal with the pain caused by circumstance. Recurrent behaviors turn into habitual behaviors as we search for a quick-fix, Band-Aid solve, bringing us instant comfort and self-gratification. These patterns, especially practiced by young people, tend to leave us with more trouble than anticipated. Is there a greater Doctor, a far better solution to the pain we experience than our instant prescription? I wonder however, would initial healing work better than Oreos?
