Fearless

Nothing in life is to be feared . It is only to be understood." Marie Curie

Some of us seek out food because we have a fear. Maybe we are afraid that we will not be loved enough. Some of us have been loved by the wrong person in the wrong way. Because of this and other reasons we are afraid of people and certain situations and turn to food for comfort.

I know it is very hard but we have to learn about the problem. We need to know that it was not our fault . That we can move on and heal from it, as soon as we understand it.

To heal we have to stop hiding. We need to confront the problem and then heal ourselves. We need to know that we are special , we are so worthy of love with the right people. We cannot let a bad experience change our lives forever. We need to overcome it.

I used to turn to food for comfort . It took time and patience and learning to love and understand myself. Now when I feel anxious and those old feelings of being unloved come back I don't turn to food. No I go for a walk or watch my favorite tv show. Sometimes I sit in a rocker or swing and try to heal that little unloved girl. Then I think of all the things I have to be thankful for . All the things I worked so hard for ,not monetary things put a loving family and friends here and then I put the food away with a happy feeling in my heart.

I am now fearless and free because I understand that I am special and deserving of love . My biggest dream is that you all can be also.

    emoticon Wow, u really hit home with me on this blog as I've totally been there & done that several times. I just recently realized that some of the trauma I faced as a teenager has a large bearing on the weight issues that I have had all of my life! I guess I have tried to hide behind it & maybe look unattractive as to not draw "the wrong kind of attention" to myself. Believe it or not I have only just made this realization & I think it is setting me free! I think up until now even though I've always wanted to lose weight I have been afraid to - of the outcome. Thanks so much for sharing!

    The hardest part of the journey to loose weight is soul searching why you got there to start with. It does take time and patience and naked truth with yourself. But wow when you release those inner emotions and demons the revelations just come forth like a flood . I am proud that you have found your way past your past and healed your little inner girl . Thank you for a wonderful blog emoticon
