The Addict's Journey from Escape & Avoidance to Authenticity & Transparency

It has been said, "We are only as sick as our secrets." Another way of coming at this would be: "Living in secrecy keeps our addiction alive."

In this episode Mark and Steve share their own past personal struggles with authenticity and transparency. And, they answer some common questions—

- WHY is it so terrifying to allow others to truly "see us" just as we are on the inside without the outside facade of masks, personas, guardedness, acting, story-telling, half-truths, selective disclosure, etc.?

- WHERE does this FEAR of being seen come from? What are its origins?

- HOW does the lack of authenticity and transparency FEED addiction and keep us trapped?

- WHAT are the initial, simple STEPS for daring to come out of secrecy and hiding to finally BE SEEN?
