Functionally Dysfunctional

As you will read in my next book, my son started doing post snippets about the dysfunction in our lives and would sign each post with #getwellsoon. I decided to piggy back off of the intent of the series and write about it.


Most of us don't even know that we are not well. We get up and we go about our everyday life trying to make it through the best way we know how. We are functionally dysfunctional and it seems to be the new norm. Our minds are overwhelmed, our hearts are broken, our bodies are out of shape and our mental capacity is super trash, but yet, we go to work everyday, we take care of the kids and the spouse, we enter in and out of these dead end relationships just hoping that it will bring some peace or joy to our lives when bottom line, we need to sit down somewhere and be healed.


I get that we have to push through, I am 100% for that, but only after you have taken the time to dig out the icky things inside so that you can become the best version of yourself. I would strongly suggest prayer and therapy. Doing the work to get healed can be difficult, irritating and stressful but worth it a thousand times over.


When we are not healed, we tend to take it out or rub it off on those that love us. We lash out, we close off, we are super defensive and we say things that we don't really mean. This serves as an injustice to those that care about you. The problem with not getting help is when those you have pushed away are gone, you may end up alone at a time where support was truly needed. Not only that, it is super unfair to bring someone else into your dysfunction. Get help fast!
