Keeping it 💯: I’m In Therapy... I mean I know a lot of people are and some are open about it, some are not. I’m on the open as a book side. Today’s session was a lot of speaking positive words to silence the negative thoughts, reflection and forgiving myself. I’m healing OLD wounds I didn’t even know were there, beginning the process of laying my co-dependency to rest and filling the emptiness with self love rather than food or cigarettes. I’m realizing that the loss of my father at a young age affected not only how I saw people in my life (wether they would leave me too) but trying to gain control by grabbing at everything within arms reach (like baked goods, fruits, sodas, red meat and lots of pasta) as well as trying to get people to like me or stick around by giving, buying, sharing, doing & sacrificing. I know I won’t be successful after my surgery or in any of my efforts to change for the better, if I don’t address these things now so here I am, doing the work.
