I'm sure it's been said in some way or another, but I wanted to share an insight that I thought of just now We all know the saying by Albert Einstein: "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them." I thought some more about what this really means in terms of PMO, and I think I finally got it. Many of us (myself included) use PMO as an escape from something - whether from loneliness, boredom, pain, etc. And to solve this we use the same thinking as we did when we created this problem. We try to escape from PMO and run from it, but eventually it always catches back up to us. So of course the solution is to embrace the urges and transform them into something else rather than try to run away from it. Maybe even run towards the urges, feel them and not just replace them with a cold shower or some other avoidance strategy. I won't go into too much detail, since there are countless posts on how to do this. Just a thought I wanted to share.
