I will not shove down my emotions with food
I will not hide behind a food hangover to avoid seeing friends and being out in public
I will not make myself sick and self sabotage my health goals
No matter what my circumstances are
And if I do, I will forgive myself and move forward and make this pledge and do my best to uphold it
Until it is my realty
I will allow myself to feel fear, shame, guilt, etc. without necessarily labeling myself anything negative
I will examine where (or from whom) those feelings originate
I will allow the negative thoughts about myself to exist, but will not invite them in for coffee — I will not entertain them
I will entertain the thoughts that I am strong, willing, capable, and doing my best to improve each day.
I will not let failure break me, or fear of failure paralyze me
I will not let the opinions of others wreck me. It’s none of my business what they think and their unrealistic expectations or overly harsh judgements are a projection of their issues, not mine
I am not afraid of feeling my negative emotions, and working through them in productive ways
I am stronger than my self sabotaging thoughts, and my actions are in tune with this decree.
I am not afraid to succeed, and to gain attention from doing so. If I can help motivate anyone, it will be an honor.
I am not afraid of what my family will think or say if I dare to succeed.
I will allow this fear to pass through me, until only I remain. Then I will continue on my path.
I’m raising the rent inside of my head, and no one is allowed in unless I allow them.
