All For Naught
Our bodies are not the enemy. They desperately want to heal and be whole. They respond to self care. They can often recover completely from the way we have abused them with food, alcohol, cigarettes and the like.
Our issue is that we have learned to cope with our negative emotions with instant gratification. We have chosen to make ourselves feel momentarily better instead of confronting our fears, our flaws, our weaknesses. We've piled shame upon ourselves and believed the lie that we aren't enough. We've forgotten our strength and traded in our power for comfort.
Most of us start our health journey from a place of self loathing. We feel fed up with how we LOOK and we are fired up to punish ourselves into submission.
We can't live like that long term. It will all be for naught or any success will be temporary until we deal with the negative emotions, until we replace the old unhealthy ways we " care" for ourselves and consciously replace them with healthy self care. Nothing will change until we decide to transform the inside first. #healtheinside #transformtheoutside
