We are a public of medication and labeling; instead of finding the cause of something we don’t like and remedying it. We tend to label our discomfort something, so we can take medication, and not have to wrestle with our minds to change it. The second Deadly Sin is “Gluttony;” we all know someone with this “disease,” whether we know it or not.
We’ve heard there’s always a way to get rich, and while the rich get richer, the poor get poorer, right? Who gets rich from gluttony? That’s a great question! Here is the answer because someone has to benefit from disorders if we don’t repair them.
Now that we know the issue, what’s the resolve? It’s easy to pinpoint, difficult to accomplish, sort of like paying bills. Instead of seeing a doctor, sit down alone or with someone else whether it’s a husband, best friend, or pastor, and work out a plan. If it truly is OCD, get on a healthy routine of cleaning, but also schedule regulated sessions with a “coach” to ensure the train hasn’t unknowingly jumped the track. Sure, it’s difficult, but when given a choice between remaining medicated about something gone awry or fixing it–which is better? After all, Gluttony is one of the deadliest of the 7 Deadly Sins.
