I do not want to, nor do I believe in, blame. But I do believe in sensitivity and awareness.
The true disaster is living the life in your mind and missing the one in front of you.

"I have much more compassion for all parts of me and I can see how all the structures were there for a very good reason and I hope that I can stay open to keep seeing them and working with them, but not allowing them to run the show. Now, I feel all these opportunities in front of me and I’m very eager, frightened and leery about moving forward, but just staying in one place isn’t comfortable either."
Two things in particular were meaningful for me, exactly what I needed to practice. I noticed that when I'm in my own boundaries my facial muscles want to relax after a lifetime of trying to be pleasing for others. I also saw that when I am truly connected to myself there isn't much of a difference between giving and receiving. Thank you Geneen for leading this work in just the way I need to experience it. - NB
Be fierce in paying attention to what's already working. What's already fine. Because in every single moment, many things are already fine.
Ask yourself what eating from stress really means. What do you believe would happen if you allowed yourself to feel your feelings instead of avoid them or swallow them with food?
Where in your body are your feelings located? What color are they? What texture? What shape? If you don't know, take a wild guess. Assume you're innately sane, extraordinarily wise, and your job is to ask questions. You don't have to manufacture answers. They have been there all the time, sleeping under the brown grocery bag of your broken heart, but you haven't looked.
Every time you feel stuck, every time you think you know why you are doing something, but you can't seem to make yourself do it differently, write a dialogue with yourself.
Be open to the outcome. Assume nothing. Be ready for anything. You will be constantly surprised.
