There’s always a way for you to get what we need. If you’re feeling anxious or resistant to something it’s because some aspect of you is hooked into approaching something a certain way that doesn’t feel right (aka meet needs) for another aspect of yourself. There are no exceptions to this rule. You use food to cope because you don’t honor this rule and you force yourself to act in ways that may meet some needs but severely compromise others. Make a commitment that if you feel any anxiety or resistance to something, even leaving the house to get groceries, you’re going to stop and dialogue with yourself about what needs you have that you’re telling yourself won’t be met in doing so, and you’re going to ask what needs would be met in going.
