Will you be there for you?
Tuesday, October 03, 2017
No one can do the work for me. No one can lose the weight for me and no one can make me happy. I can reach out to people for help -- which is really important. It's much better to have people around you giving you support, encouragement, and advice. Ultimately, though, I have to do it for myself. The question is, will I be there for myself or will I keep making excuses and waiting for someone else to fix me? A more emotional question is, thinking back to the fat little girl that I was during my whole childhood, the one who never had comfortable clothes to wear, the one who was almost always the fattest one in any class or group, the one who had mental issues that no one understood, the one who never had a boyfriend-- will I be there for her? My answer is yes I will. Maybe I can help her to feel good in her body and be at peace with her "differentness". I can promise that I'll at least try and that I won't turn away.
