Obsessions are repetitive thoughts, while compulsions are repetitive actions that we feel little or no control over.
Often, we feel uncontrollable anxiety when we attempt to stop these thoughts. But you are not trapped; there is a solution and a way out.
Breaking Life Patterns
When we are born, we internalize the way our families and our cultures understand and manage the world. As we grow, we develop un understanding about who we are (inner self) and learn the roles and rules we need to survive in our families and societies (public self).
Some of us belong to a family that has an unhealthy family system. We all learn from our families: As adults, we repeat what we saw and heard when younger. It is reflected in the way we explain the world, our relations, and the choices we make. The only way to change it is to understand what we learned and to find the alternative choices.

Goals are often used when we officially transition from adolescence to adulthood or any other milestone in our lives. They are also used in business to keep clear direction and clarify required actions.
Goals help in other areas of our lives. Clear goals in family, relations, school, employment, finances, health, retirement, etc. Goals keep us focused, motivated and informed about choices and consequences. Most importantly, goals allow us to prioritize our actions so we can move in a consistent direction relevant to what is important to us.
We are constantly striving toward improving the quality of our lives. The area of relations is one where we can experience significant improvements. We can better the quality of the relationship with ourselves, our love ones and the people in our workplace.
Personal Development requires that we make changes: learning how we manage relations, identifying our needs, setting boundaries, asking for what we need. We must also focus on ways of expressing anger and frustration, setting goals and taking care of ourselves and others.
People in healthy relations enjoy themselves more, find peace, struggle less with others and have lasting relationships.
