    We often get into trouble trying to escape intense negative feelings.

    Hello again!

    Does "We often get into trouble trying to escape intense negative feelings?" mean "We often get into trouble by/from trying to escape intense negative feelings" or "We often get into trouble as a result of trying to escape intense negative feelings?"

    I believe the author is saying that we get into trouble because of the ways we act to try to escape intense negative feelings. It is difficult to translate psychobabble.
