Whenever I have not done well with eating ,there are always other things that I have given too much attention to that didn't furthur my recovery.Too much time spent on things that weren't that important,letting other peoples issues take too much emotional toll on me.Today I give it all up and focus on my recovery,and put myself first.I'm not letting anyone or anything come before that.
I have felt sad and misunderstood and of course being a compulsive eater have done what I do ..eat over it .It isn't worth it .I can't change how people act or see things.People do what they are going to do and think what they are going to think.I can't control that situation nor do I want to.
What I have learned over the years in recovery is there are two rights sometimes in situations. That that ' two sides of the coin' adage doesn't always apply,unless it's one of those trick coins from a magic shop that have heads on both sides.
The lesson for today is do I want to be right or do I want to be happy?
I choose happiness.It is so much easier.
I let go of everything that doesn't support my recovery,and I breathe and get in touch with what is really important.Peace of mind.
One Day At A Time.
