We talk a lot about Community at The Post and how important our role is in bringing each Community we serve into a place of communication and shared experiences. We all see the news from around the world – Sudan, Germany, Seattle, – so much so that we lose sight of what is happening right her in our own front yards.
As we work to develop different ways of sharing our message in the most positive and comprehensive way we can, we look for information from many different sources in the hope that we can encourage you, our readers, to look at some of the nuggets of wisdom we find and that they will generate conversations and bring about new ways of looking at who we are, how we think and what we can do to approach the challenges of building and maintaining a Healthy Community in new and more effective way…positive ways.
In that spirit, I stumbled across a TED talk which you can find and listen to on our Facebook page as well as on our YouTube Channel. Everything you think you know about addiction is wrong | Johann Hari is the name of the talk and again we see the value of belonging to a Community of neighbors who know one another, people who feel the importance of giving back, organizations committed to providing the Safety Net many of us will need at some point in our lives so that we can get back on our feet and Pay Forward the many kindnesses we have received from being a part of a Community.
What really causes addiction — to everything from cocaine to smart-phones? And how can we overcome it? Johann Hari has seen our current methods fail firsthand… worth a listen! It makes sense that when we feel undervalued; like we don’t really belong, the urge to “look away”, to escape the pain that comes with facing the mistakes we have made in our lives, that we find that escape in a bottle, a computer game, food or anger. How much better to turn to a friend; to be so busy, so needed, that we do not take the time to acknowledge the pain?
Take a listen to this Ted Talk and if you find something as you go through your day that you would like to share with Your Community, give us a call, shoot us a text, a tweet, an email; or just drop by. We love to visit with Our Community.
