Hi Esther

Sad to read your post here about the tough time you are having. As far as your own eating goes, the most effective stand to take may be: “either I live with this difficult situation I hate and I overeat OR I live with this difficult situation I hate and I don’t overeat.” Just for now, of course, and keeping an eye on what the difference between these two choices mean for you.

As for the situation in general, I find it helps to look for “the gift” in it, what value there may be for you in the longer term. It’s inevitable you won’t see it at first, thinking, “WHAT POSSIBLE GOOD CAN COME OUT OF ALL THIS S**T THAT’S GOING ON?” But this is the whole point; if you could see the gift right away, it wouldn’t be a gift (of self-awareness, self-discovery, or whatever you want to call it).

Hope to “see” you next Sunday for our Q&A webinar. Email a question for me! Stay in touch!
