For many the most intense places where we hold secrets is around food and body.
No matter your size, shame about the body, dislike about our weight and shape, and guilt around eating and appetite can be very powerful experiences for so many of us. It can cause us to hide, to go stealth, and to put on a false facade where we pretend that we’re one way with food and body, but we’re really experiencing something else.
We often try to make it look on the outside as if we have no issues with food or physical appearance and beauty whatsoever – but on the inside, we struggle magnificently. Many people have intense eating challenges of this nature – and yet most of us would never know it. That’s how good we can be at keeping secrets.
Sometimes, we need help.
Sometimes, we simply need to speak about the truth of our inner world.
Consider this strategy:
Honestly admit to yourself that keeping your food challenges a secret and hiding your shame and guilt from others is costing you a lot. It’s taking a lot of your time and energy. Just own that, and acknowledge it.
And then, consider making a shift. Consider taking the leap and joining the community of others who are working hard to grow, to heal and to evolve.
Seek out the community of others who are actively looking at their relationship with food and body as a beautiful and powerful doorway to transformation. -Marc David- Psychology of Eating
