I Quit.

I’ve been working with a therapist for the past several months, which is something new for me. I dabbled with therapy during graduate school, but it never really stuck. And, I was never really honest, so we were blithely skating along the false premise. When I decided to quit my disordered eating, I decided to quit a lot of other things, too.

I quit…

  • setting unrealistic goals for myself
  • lying, to myself and others
  • judging, myself an others… OK, I’m working on it.
  • caring so damn much what others think
  • setting arbitrary goals and timelines for myself
  • feeling anxious all the time
  • trying to control everything all the time
  • feeling QUITE so guilty about everything and anything

There are more, and I’ll get into the nitty-gritty of these later, but for now, those are the things I’m trying to quit. Day 6, let’s keep this journey going.
