Recovery from Eating Disorders, Body image challenges, Postpartum Depression (PPD), Anxiety, and New Mom support
"It is hard, so terribly hard, to please yourself. Far from being the easy thing that it sounds like, it is almost the hardest thing in the world."
Do you feel a quiet, sad emptiness that you cover up with food?
Do you find yourself bingeing or purging even though you "know better" (have read all the books, are a feminist, feel awful every time afterward)?
Are you wanting to cultivate a spiritual practice or use art for self discovery?
Do you find yourself saying yes to please people, but feel an underlying angst or anger?
Do you feel other moms transitioned easily to this motherhood-thing and never question themselves?
Are you struggling with body image in pregnancy and postpartum?
There is a thread you follow. It goes among things that change. But it doesn't change. People wonder about what you are pursuing. You have to explain about the thread. But it is hard for others to see. While you hold it, you can't get lost...don't ever let go of the thread. -William Stafford, The Way it Is
