First of all, maybe binge was an overstatement considering i had an ice cream sundae and some fries. But i think describing it as hurting myself is rather dramatic dont you think?
I meditate, I work out, and when i do have problems, I have people around me i can talk to. Im not too proud to ask for help when i need it. I was a competitive cheerleader for years so when something bothers me, i throw on my old training kit, head over to my gym and tumble my little heart out because theres something about that bouncy blue mat that makes all my problems melt away and i leave there feeling sooo much better.
Believe me, I have more than enough ways to deal with my emotions in a healthy and productive manner.
But sometimes you just wanna do something that may be bad for you but feels so damn good. As i previously stated - I AM NOT AN EMOTIONAL EATER. Food has never been something that i turned to in order to feel better about myself. On that occassion, I was craving both items and i make no apologies for it.
My hubby smoked for years and gave up 3years ago. In that time, he has smoked about 4 times. It doesnt mean he WANTS to harm himself and I dont think any less of him because of it. I understand the need and the reasoning and i get that he is only human - as am i.
Sometimes i wish people would stop being so analytical and stop trying to break everything down and disect it to no end. Sometimes you do something because its what you want to do. It doesnt make you a bad person, it doesnt make you a failure, it doesnt mean im eating my emotions, it doesnt mean im not dealing with my issues...its just means i wanted a damn sundae and some damn fries lol.
Thought this website was supposed to be for support. Didnt realize i would be vilified for slippin. damn.
