Freedom of choice is a huge issue for me! I grew up in an authoritarian home and rebelled heavily as a teenager. I see how feeling deprived has led me to rebel and even to binge. Monday I went to the beach for the day as a treat for myself. I was focusing and journaling about my freedom to choose. I thought “I can do anything I want. I can walk in one direction as far as I want, and then I can turn around and walk the other way. I can go out on the pier. I can watch the dolphins.” It was lovely to feel so in control of everything that I chose to do!
