Thank you Carol, yes, think I am lucky to go to all these places and see so much of the world! I suspect people were eating a lot because I was a guest and they wanted to show they were taking good care of me! But the quantities on THEIR plates were very sensible. Also, all the food I had apart from the desserts (rarely served, usually fresh fruits) was very healthy. I don't think I saw any obese people. I should add I didn't see any of my colleagues eating snacks as we worked together. I was offered tea/coffee or water, not sodas, and never snacks. Finally, people walk a lot still, not everybody can afford a car... It all adds up. :) 12 days ago
You don't need anyone's affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn't actually about you. It's about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don't have to internalize that.
Your worth isn't contingent upon other people's acceptance of you. it's something inherent. YOU EXIST, and therefore, YOU MATTER.
You're allowed to voice your thoughts and feelings. You're allowed to assert your needs and take up space. You're allowed to hold onto the truth that who you are is exactly enough. And you're allowed to remove anyone from your life who makes you feel otherwise. ~Daniell Koepke
