Usually when we emotionally eat we think we are sabotaging ourselves.
We think we’re against ourselves.
Why can’t we just control ourselves.
What if I told you, we aren’t trying to sabotage ourselves?
What’s really going on is that there is a part of you that only knows how to be with emotions in a certain way.
We all have different parts of ourselves. Some want change, another wants to be the same, go left, right etc.
The part that goes to food is trying to….
keep us SAFE!
Trying to protect you from the emotion.
Think back to a time where you couldn’t feel your emotion out of fear, abandonment, feeling rejected, not validated? It wasn’t safe to feel…
We still need to feel that emotion so how do we start to transform this part of us and move out of our emotional eating pattern?
