Please, let me introduce you to my friend Hope.
First she says, You need a ((((HUG)))). Now, didn't that feel good? Then I dry my tears and look for hope. She tells me, "The past is just that. It passed behind you and you have a brand new future right in front of you. For the next 15 minutes, just think about how nice it would be to have your life in your own control. If it were true, would you feel safe? Would you be proud of yourself for regaining control? Would you feel hopeful? Would you feel less scared? Would you feel more powerful?
At the end of that 15 minutes, look back. Wasn't it awesome to feel that way? Would you like to feel more of that? If you could do it for 15 minutes, do you think you could do it for another 15 minutes? Are you willing to try to feel that way for another 15 minutes?
You can string those 15 minutes out for the next 3 hours. But then what? You'll be wanting to eat soon. Don't be afraid. You can do it. You have already done it? What was the last healthy meal you ate that you really enjoyed? Could you make it again? Are you willing to put out some effort to make that happen? If you eat a healthy meal, you will be ready to start buying your life back 15 minutes at a time." That friend of mine, Hope, really know how to pick me back up and make me fearless just for today.
If you are having a bad day, remember, you are worth it. You deserve to feel so much better than this. Let this be your new beginning.
Im so glad I have Hope on my side. If you need her help just ask because she always says, YES!
