Things that don’t exist in recovery:
- Eating too much
- Gaining too fast
- Not doing enough yoga
- Not eating enough oatmeal
- Not being ‘sick enough’ to recover.
- Eating too much junk food
Oh, God, yes.
unless you’re a binger. Then that stuff can sometimes actually exist.
Anonymous asked: Higher Power? Jealousy? Zero?
Higher Power: I think I do have a higher power but I am honestly really self conscious about believing in God because of my sexuality as well as because of how silly it seems to me to put all my faith into a very illogical notion. But I catch myself praying and thanking God so I really think I’m predisposed to believe in Him.
Jealousy: I could probably write forever and never even scratch the surface on this topic but a major source of jealousy with me has been of my siblings, specifically my little sister. She’s always been so popular and smart and good at everything she does (seriously, she is the lead in every school play, good at sports, tons of friends, goes to an ivy league school, killer sense of fashion…) so I never felt like I could compete with her. I also felt like I should be “better” than her because I am the older sister so yeah jealous.
I have zero tolerance for: discrimination and bigotry (aka bullying to kids). Don’t pick on someone for any reason. Period.
Thanks for the asks!!!! <3
