New Year, New Me

Wednesday, January 02, 2019

All my life, even as a young child, I was always afraid that if I voiced my own opinions, I would end up hurting someone elses feelings. Even now I tend to keep all my opinions, all my feelings and all my emotions buried deep because I am afraid. I am afraid of losing people I love, simply because they won't like what I have to say. Little did I know I was actually hurting myself by keeping things bottled up. Because I did turn to food, and it has been my non-judging best friend for years. Over eating has been my way of coping with everything I keep bottled up.
Food is not going to control me, and it can not be my best friend anymore. This year, I take control. I will be 54 in February, and, I am setting myself free from the power that food holds over me.
I will be a more confident woman, I will voice my own opinions, and I will not care if people like what I have to say or not. I need to do this, not only for my physical health, but my mental health as well.
It's not like I will never see my best friend ever again, I'll just be seeing it in smaller, healthier portions.
So let's get this year going, and get ready for a brand new me!
