Destructive Behaviour

Friday, January 18, 2013

I noticed last week that I was eating compulsively and I couldn't figure out what was going on for me! Yesterday, while talking with my husband, I realized I had been talking with my sisters a week prior about a priest at our grade school who was charged with molesting students. This conversation triggered feelings in me that I began to express through compulsive and destructive behaviors.

Along with a support network,I would like to have tools in place to help me recognize and deal with my feelings.

First I need to be aware, be conscience that these types of discussions cause me to detach from myself and become separated from my body and my emotions.

Second, I need to protect myself from these types of conversations whenever possible.

Third, I need to jot down a note that I have been involved in or exposed to a conversation about violence and/or abuse so I can recognize the cycle of emotion and behaviors

Fourth, I need to pray and ask God to heal whatever negativity and pain I am holding on to. emoticon
