Shedding the Pounds of Shame and Guilt

Shedding the Pounds of Shame and Guilt

Wanted to give you all an update about my road trip. Since returning home from the road trip I have let go of 12 pounds of weight. Of course, it is not really about weight I discovered, but about shame and guilt from my childhood. When I was able to leave my friend and take care of myself first it was a big breakthrough for me. It was difficult and in the past I would not have done it. I would have sacrificed my own health and happiness for her. Even though she was not my responsibility and she didn’t want me to stay, this is what I was taught to do as a child for my Mom when she was sick. After all these years I was able to choose my own well being over someone else. I am sharing this because I know there are many others who put themselves last and they don’t need to. Your first responsibility is to yourself. Love yourself enough. I finally do.
