“A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow.” ― William Shakespeare
Food isn't my BFF, though I've been asking that of it for many years now. Food really doesn't comfort me when I'm sad, listen to me when I'm in crisis, make my pain go away. All food does is nourish me when I'm hungry and/or make me feel completely sick when I'm not.
I'm going to keep this in mind when I'm tempted to reach for food when I'm not hungry. And in those moments, I'm going to call my real BFF or write to my wonderful Spark friends, or call my mom. I'm going to get the support I really need in that moment.
“Friendship marks a life even more deeply than love.” ― Elie Wiesel
