Debasement puts you in an eating disorder trap

Debasement and Self-Criticism: the trap

If you have an eating disorder, you often feel insecure and question your value as a person. You are certain that the criticism you give yourself is an echo of the criticism you believe is aimed at you from others. No amount of reassurance will alter your position. Reassurance, you believe, comes from people who mean well, are trying to soothe you, don't understand the reality of your worthlessness or are trying to exploit you by making you believe you are better than you know you are.

Age, looks or smiling faces are not indications of freedom from dangerous sexual liaisons just as appearance is not reliable evidence indicating the presence or absence of an eating disorder.

Eating Disorders Eclipse Authentic Life Goals and Desires

What's behind the black sphere that glows in the dark? * Or rather, what's behind your eating disorder barricade that occasionally shimmers faintly in your psyche - a surprising idea, a wish, life goals that you are certain could never come true?


An eating disorder is a dream stealer.

The powerful forces that maintain your eating disorder block out possibilities for personal discovery. You block out your own life goals. When you think about food, weight, shape, resist or succumb to cravings you create an eclipse of your authentic self.  And you may not know it.

Trusting Dreams in Eating Disorder Recovery 


If you have an eating disorder you may not know who to listen to, who to trust, what to believe, what even to hope for. Yet you carry within you the source of your most effective guidance that comes from your authentic truth – your dreams.

Paying attention to your dreams, despite the disguises dreams use through the symbols your unconscious presents. The disguise is there to help you get closer to what is meaningful to you without your needing to push that meaning away too fast.
