They key is you must be the one to take back your life from these limiting behaviours. Until you say yes, it controls you, and gives you all the excuses to keep on doing what you are doing. And yes, it can kill you. It certainly diminishes the quality of your life's experiences. For me feeding the self, is about “feeling” the self and knowing what to do about those feelings in the moment. You are not a victim. You can change your story any time, make yourself the hero of the story you tell. Where do we find joy? Happiness? Peace, or Bliss? When we release the emotions rather than trying to force them – then these states become our “normal” resting state. That's right, when we are not engaged in our thoughts, our resting state drops us back to joy, happiness, peace, bliss. You can live from this place and take back your life from this eating disorder.
