Here’s the thing: I don’t know how to do things halfway.
If I’m going to try to lose weight, I will starve myself. It’s what I do.
It’s a self-reinforcing behavior as well because I see the results on the scale and then I keep doing it.
Weight loss is not the only area I’m like this in. I mean, I’m “all or nothing” in a lot of places.
I don’t really see the purpose for gray areas.
I never have.
I should find a way to implement more gray into my life. It would be useful and healthier.
I’ve always thought that having a firm sense of what I believe was just me having a strong personality. I think now that it is a detriment to me and my emotional and physical health.
I need to not be perfect. I need to accept that there is gray in between “perfect” and “failure.”
