The STRUGGLE is REAL
Monday, October 14, 2019
People are not generally supportive. They pretend to be or try to be, up until they want to get off of their plan. They will not stay on their plan for our sake. Some in our lives cause stress and anxiety. So that leaves it up to us.
So when you feel unsupported, what should you do? Who do you turn to? I learned that I had to grow a relationship with God and learn to see value in myself. THAT was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. I’ve never felt like I was of value. I felt unworthy in every way possible. My self-esteem was so far below negative that it had to look up to see the earth’s core.
I went to a therapist and a doctor to get help many times. I found out that I was bipolar and clinically majorly depressed. I was not surprised at all. I had had a traumatic childhood and marriage and survived much violence in my life. Now I see a trauma counselor for help. She is very good.
I had to get to the root of my HEAD issues before I could get to the root of my weight issues, personally. I did much journaling and solving and reading and therapy and school and...
I literally went at it like it was my career, my sole purpose in life, to get out of my 460 pound body that I was trapped in bed with.
So what will YOU do? What obstacles are in YOUR life? What resources do you have?
How can you overcome those obstacles with your resources? What is your next step?
