Can I confess something to you?
It’s embarrassing, but I just cannot help thinking that it might be helpful.
When I woke up this morning, I was angry.
My first thought was super negative, and it just kept getting worse.
The anger made me sad.
The sadness made me more angry.
I felt overwhelmed with emotion.
At first, I tried to think my way into being positive, promise myself that I would “get back on track” and the feelings would go away.
But I know better.
It’s that same old DIET mentality that wants to sweep it all under the rug, not feel it, not look at it, not actually deal with what’s going on… and just ‘GET BACK ON TRACK”.
Whatever the heck that even means!
Be perfect? Have no feelings? Only eat perfectly? Have no cravings? Make no mistakes?
I WISHED THERE WAS A PILL FOR THIS – IT FELT SO LONELY.
But there is no pill… at least not one that actually FIXES the problem.
In desperation, I tried a little thing I learned years ago, not even really believing it would work.
And 15 minutes later, I was feeling GREAT AGAIN.
No need to diet, or starve, or blame, or shame, or control, or try to override my feelings.
No pills, no surgery… none of that nonsense.
