Finally, we've entered the last month of this year. We had a long year of battling disease, each other, ourselves and high levels of anxiety.
Now that 2022 is knocking at our door, the anxiety about what that year is going to be like, can be overwhelming.
As someone who strongly dislikes New years, I've made a list that hopefully sparks hope and excitement for the new year.
I am an emotional eater. This means that what I eat and how much I eat really depends on how I'm feeling. I always kinda knew, but never really did anything about it. My excuse?
"Don't we all need to eat? "
A series of events that happened that week, triggered all the pain I had inside, to rush back up again. Normally I could control it with knowledge and logic, but this time I was completely overwhelmed, lost my inner control, and let the child in me rage. To shield the people I love from the verbal assault she was spewing inside, I blocked myself off completely and went into a silent state.
