Guess what came from the UPS guy today?
Let some food sanity for me start today. I am tired of abusing my body. I am tired of this binge, purge, binge, purge cycle that I have been on for so long. I will be talking about it as I read the book and apply it to my crazy disordered way to eating. Boots was interested as well.
I wanted to talk about something that happened this weekend that totally threw me for a loop. I was at a party on Friday night minding my own business when a woman came up to me asked “How many kids do you have?” I said, “None” and before it was totally out of mouth she was gone.
Really? Must there be this competition from those with kids and those without. I am a late thirty something woman who is unmarried and childless. If I want to have friends at my age, I am bound to meet people with kids. I love kids. I wish I could have kids of my own. It does not make me any less of a woman. I have not been blessed with kids.
I know the woman who asked me that question had some major social issues that I can not begin to fathom. I will not let it get me down and it will not turn into a reason to be tell myself I am unlovable and go on from there for my lack of a husband and kids.
Sometimes I will never understand people but in some ways, I don’t want to.
