Eating Peace: Shame and Guilt….First, don’t fight or be against them

Guilt and shame are so debilitating, depressing, paralyzing. Especially when it comes to weight, body image, eating, not eating. When we get upset, troubled, frightened….it’s not so crazy to reach for food. It’s one of the pleasures of life. But it doesn’t work as a painkiller–except temporarily. And then after an over-eating session or a… Continue Reading
