Some of us have scars you can see. Lines marking our skin. Reminders of painful experiences. Lessons we might have learned the hard way. Some hold a cool story about a wild night. Others are too difficult to discuss.
But maybe you don’t have any scars at all?
Perhaps you were lucky that your body was never marked.
Either way, most of us have scars you can’t see. The same pain. The same lessons. The same reminders.
The difference is that with these scars the healing process is not as easy as the physical.
There’s always a story there whether it’s been told or not. Someone’s openness to their story usually tells me where they are on the path towards healing.
It’s that story inside of us that binds us to our view of the world. It begins to define how we see life and how we react to situations around us.
The experiences that build the story of our life also build our behaviours.
Some of them wanted and others unwanted. Unwanted because they seem destructive when in fact they may be trying to protect us or help us cope with feelings yet to be acknowledged.
My scars led me to craft a story that all men wanted was my body. That I could not trust my femininity or my sexuality. I could not rely on my intuition about people because I didn’t see this coming. Should I have?
That was the end of my confidence and self-love having barely the opportunity to blossom.
These beliefs structure our behaviours.
I wore baggy clothes to hide my body. I overate to wear extra fat as my shield. I binged to feel full from something when I truly felt so empty. I felt robbed of what should have been years of self-discovery and exploration.
My scars were left to their own devices for far too long. I allowed my scars to control my life and my potential.
I know so many of you understand this. You feel crushed by the weight of your sadness, anger and discontent. I’ve been where you might be.
But I couldn’t live there anymore.
So I got to work on my insides and as a result my outsides came along for the ride too.
If this resonates with you then stop the self-sabotage.
Stop allowing your frustration and emotions to drive you desire to dive into a bag of potato chips or eat a box of cookies! Ultimately leaving you feeling like the start to every day is Day 1.

- Mindless snacking.
