Nothing to fix? No one to help? Feeling bored? Don’t want to—or you never learned how to simply sit and soak in the stillness?

If you need hype and drama to fuel your day, you may want to slow down and revisit the Steps.

Answers in silence

Next, peel the layers of denial away until you get to the root cause of what past event drives your need to fill each moment with hysteria. Was it constant put-downs that instilled a lack of confidence that forces you to try too hard?

And this righteousness will bring peace. Yes, it will bring quietness and confidence forever (Isaiah 32:17 NLT).
