It’s really easy to feel so broken. And it’s really easy to feel as if your life is so rigid, out of control, and like there is only one way to live. But this isn’t true. Really take a quiet moment and ask yourself some tough questions …
“Could I skip exercising without extreme anxiety? And would I be able to continue eating normally without restricting?”
“What would happen if I stopped counting macros, weighing food, and eating out of Tupperware?”
“I just binged. I can’t purge. What’s really the worst that could happen?”
“When I turn to food to fill myself up – what do I really need to be filled with instead that I am not receiving?”
We live in a world where people are rapidly searching externally for answers to happiness – for a way to numb out pain – for a way to feel a sense of belonging and self-esteem. But you will always feel a sense of emptiness and you will forever be on a hamster wheel going nowhere until you realize that the answers to everything you need are already within you.
Think back to when you were young. You know how to eat. You know how to laugh, to smile, to have fun. Don’t overcomplicate life. Don’t push your truth away. Go live fully alive, and watch your whole life transform. ~Britt
