A few days ago, I hosted a webinar about my When Food is Your Mother class, and was asked a question that I hear often:
What do you do when you don’t have anyone you can go to for support? Or what do you do when you have a lot of deficits of connection in your life from early experiences? It is too late for me? I hear you saying that the ultimate answer to overeating and binge eating is connection, but I don’t have many places where I can receive the connection that you’re talking about.
This is a poignant and powerful question – and one that I think so many of us can relate to.
Yes – it’s a bit of a catch 22 – when the answer is connection, but safe, trusted spaces of connection aren’t available – where do you start, or begin? And if your early experiences were particularly difficult, is there hope?
Yes, this is vulnerable and courageous territory!
As this conundrum is so common, I wanted to share my answer with everyone here. I hope it speaks to your heart and reaffirms that it is never too late.
