fear and the armor of fat
Sunday, January 16, 2011
We often hear how food affects our feelings. When we overeat long enoungh our bodies may get fat. This fat may often cause several emotions.
i started wondering if i use my weight and food as an armor against problems such as fear. If i don't reach my goals, then it is not my fault. it is the fat. If i don't have a lit of friends or am popular, it isn't me. It is the fat. When i am afraid of doing something, i have a reason (an excuse) that there is not anthing i can do. i can blame the fat!
Now i don't always think this way. but lately i have been going through some growth and i started thinking that i have held myself back from what i really want to do becauase of fear. I blamed the "flab" but then i sabatoge myself from getting rid of the fat.
It is time to remove the armor - the physical and the mental. maybe even the spiritual issues that lead to my fear. to truly get where i want to go, it is time to be above the fear and focus on my goals.
