Hope you are having a good day! I went a bit emotional yesterday and I ate some high sugar stuff to fix my low mood. Of course it didn't work. Of course I don't know another way and I just do what I know, which just has terrible consequences.
So I am in search of doing something different today and I think I am assessing my fears and my reactions to situations and emotions. I react to situations over-emotionally and I react to emotions with food.
Sometimes when I am fearful and insecure in my day, I feel like I react in the same way just like when I was a child. I was never good enough for my parents and I felt responsible for their behavior. Now I know this is not the case and that I need to go back in the past and experience this pain again through a different pair of eyes. My grown up eyes, I can see that things that I was told, that I was expected to achieve are not real, not necessary. And I am going to give this child a big hug and let it feel love! Otherwise I know I am gonna eat on it again and again and I can't do that because my eating leads to depression and vice versa.
Are you willing to give your inner child a big hug with me chicks?
