Cleaning the Inside of the Cup

Listen to podcast audio:

Dr. Eddie Capparucci and Gary Wilkerson continue their conversation on the process of recovery from sex and pornography addiction. They talk about the importance of personal history and discuss some ways that men can learn to connect with others on a personal level.

Key Points from the Podcast

  • If we can identify the pain points and emotional triggers in our life, we can learn to slow down our emotional childhood thinking and move toward rational adult thinking and come up with healthy solutions.

  • Many of us are unwilling and uncomfortable probing into the depths of our heart, our past and our brokenness to find healing so we end up with unresolved issues and behaviors.

  • Dr. Eddie Capparucci shares how he developed an avoidance attachment disorder in his childhood. Unaware of it, it was left unresolved and carried on into his adult life, destroying his relationships.

  • Many men are emotionally undeveloped. They don’t know how to identify or communicate their emotions and they are uncomfortable with the emotions of others. Emotionally connecting with others is challenging for them.
