I especially like this:

"We don't do this work to get rid of anything, even discomfort. We do it because it's a way to get closer to ourselves, even if that involves discomfort."

Doesn't it sometimes feel like when you're feeling emotionally uncomfortable and want to binge your first instinct is to want to "GET RID" of the binge feeling? I like the way of looking at it that its not getting RID of anything, but getting CLOSER to ourselves. So there CAN be something comforting about NOT eating when you want to emotionally eat and are not hungry. We're getting closer to ourselves.
