I have learned that procrastination is a mode of survival to keep from being hurt. For me that means from the failures in my past to get where I need to go. Without anyone to “coach” you through the “GIFTS” of failure, you could be like me and get stopped dead in your tracks. This “protection” from pain and suffering is not a good thing. I work every day to conquer this evil that haunts my life. Oh of course there is way more to the story, but we all can relate in some way. And our stories and our pain can be healed if we allow ourselves to bring it into the light and see it for what it really is.
