Day 9 Here's What I Want
Thursday, February 16, 2012
Today's topic is a continuation of yesterday, which, for me is not very inspiriing. The book had a questionnaire in it to answer on how you want people to comment on your progress, or lack thereof. You are supposed to reflect on this.
For each one, I answered "Ignore this topic completely".....
except if I've visibly lost weight, and then you can comment.....
I guess my reflection is really that I hate being judged. I don't like the spotlight on myself.
I'd much rather talk about your problems than mine. I have been told by friends and colleagues that I am way too hard on myself. I guess this is true. And, in retrospect, probably one reason I turn to food as a comfort/drug. It soothes my emotional pain.
In the past I have treid to find comfort from others words and sentiments. It doesn't seem to hold. So, it's hard for me to find encouragement from other people.
