Now if there is one thing that I would suggest as the main priority in your big move to recover from binge eating disorder – it is to get support, quality support from understanding people, accountability partners and CONNECT with them daily whether you feel good bad or indifferent
I may be recovered from eating disorders, but this is still something that I need to keep doing, because life is life, it can get tough and like Einstein said, you cannot solve a problem with the same brain and thinking that created it (or something like that, but you get what I mean.)
Reaching out for help, support, helping someone else and simply connecting with the world and its people helps you to show up for your life, for the world, expands you mind and gives you new insights into your problems and some great raw material to work with to bring out your own creativity, passion and joy.
This is one tool that is not to be overlooked – trust me, and I get it, an eating disorder wants you isolated so this is a BIG action step and really going against the eating disorder. You nail this one and you gonna rock your recovery!
Now over to y’all… you know you gotta back up the knowledge with some action, that’s the way we do it right.
Thinking about it wont create the change.
If i told you to pick up a pen what would you do? you would move your hand and pick it up right? Can you achieve the same result by thinking about it?
Okay, now action time!
Think of 3-5 people who you can get help and support from. Write it down and connect with them daily! Leave me a comment on whether you have done this and has it helped?
Now a second question for you. Would you guys like to have a closed private group or a forum added to this site for support?
Let me know in the comments – remember this is for you! I will base the move on what you want.
The message and power of support and being there for each other is beautifully explained by this Daily Om passage:
“Like birds flying in a V, when we feel the presence of others moving along side of us, there is little we cannot accomplish
Pushing steadily forward, this aerodynamic V reduces air resistance for the whole flock. With wings moving in harmony, the feathered group continues its course across the sky, covering more ground together in community than as individuals. When the bird at the front gets tired, she will move to the rear of the formation where the wind drag is lowest, and a more rested bird can take her place.
By learning from the example of our winged guides, all of us can feel empowered to take on daring challenges as we chart adventurous courses. Feel the strength of others moving alongside you, as their presence lends power to your wings during this journey across the sky of life. When buffeted by unexpected gusts, we can choose to find refuge in the loving shelter of friends and family. We may even marvel as an otherwise difficult day passes by like a swift wind, as a kindred spirit charts a way for us through the clouds and rain ahead. If your wings begin to ache on your journey, look around for somebody else to fly at the front for a while. All of us move faster when we move together. Let your ego drop earthwards as we all soar ever higher.”
