Emotional Black Holes are the inner wounds and suffering we try to snuff out through all sorts of self destructive practices. Some seek to quiet the heart’s cry for help through any of a given manner of excess – whether it be drugs, alcohol, pornography, violence, gambling, illicit affairs, crime and illicit schemes, gluttony, or material pursuits. Sometimes even socially perceived good practices, such as exercise, work, or religion, when practiced in excess, are in truth a desperate attempt to escape the gaping black holes that are too painful to bear. Step through the doors of these free excerpt pages and sample some of author Grant Hallstrom’s personal and true journey of his escape from his own emotional black holes.
