Many of my clients are shocked when they realize that true and lasting healing from disordered eating and body-hate actually has very little to do with food and their bodies.
Sure, those are the things you project your pain onto. That you try with all your might to control to stop your unworthiness wounds from flaring up.
But, the efforts of control are a massive distraction.
A distraction that reinforces the message you've bought into that if you don't control, that if you don't strive and grind for perfection, then you won't ever feel worthy. Loved. Beautiful even.
You have the power within you, at this very moment, to take steps to stop this cycle.
By giving yourself permission, momentary permission even, to practice imperfect action.
