Self-Compassion is needed
whenever I find myself:
disapproving and judgmental
fixating on nutrients or calories
focusing on what’s wrong with my body
eating more than I want or less than I need
binging or purging
believing that this pain will never change
angry at myself for having eating struggles
eating foods I know are not good for me or my energy
feeling guilty or ashamed about my struggle
tight, hard, contracted and reactive.
Take a moment to find your breath.
Notice any sensations in your body.
Soothe yourself with gentle touch.
Feel how each breath in nourishes you
and each exhale soothes you
May I be kind to myself
May I trust my body
