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.
