The relationship you have with yourself is the most important and impactful on how you treat food.
The relationship with yourself is the most important relationship you have. Often, it’s the one you take the most for granted and spend the least amount of time nurturing. This relationship impacts how you move through life. How your interactions and relationships are with others. How far you will push yourself and most importantly, how you treat your mind, body and spirit.
Looking at the relationship you have with yourself can feel daunting. It often means you are met with fears, darkness and parts of yourself that you do not wish to see. These parts can wear the distracting masks of overeating, drinking too much, shopping too much, you can fill in the blank. All these behaviors are just covering up the unconscious, the old “stuff” that sits there, the ego. That part of you that wants you to believe that looking at this part of you is a bad idea. So, you adopt behaviors that allow you to avoid and, in some way, make you feel safe from looking within.
