Day 252 

Affirmation:

Food is fuel for my body.

I eat when my body needs nourishment, not when my heart does.

I eat to support my physical body, not my emotional body.

 

________________

Sometimes when we haven’t been accepted, understood, or loved, we learn to stop asking for what we need.  We stop looking for our emotional needs to be met by the world.  We quit sharing our pain and our need for support and comfort.  We learn to rely on ourselves to meet our basic emotional needs for love, comfort, and fulfillment.  And then, sometimes, we start to eat… and eat… and eat. Food can easily become how we feed our emotional selves.

We can ask the question, “With this food, am I feeding my body or my heart?” If the answer is “heart” it’s important to determine what is REALLY needed in that moment. Comfort? Support? Reassurance? Once the truth is made conscious, we can start feeding the spiritual and emotional centers with the (self)love and (self)acceptance they are craving.
