I posted yesterday in Ask Brooke about the desire for the drink on my anniversary. I did decide to not have a drink and just enjoy the evening. I am so much fun even when I don’t drink. The situation made me realize how many times in my life I have used food and drink to make myself “fun.” I felt boring if I didn’t join in with having a drink or overeating. It totally falls into my people pleasing and trying to control what others think of me! I never even realized that this was a thought I was having. I am just amazed at all of the thoughts I keep discovering as I do this work. Thoughts that I don’t really believe, but they are in my head and leading to negative feelings.
Thank you for the work that you do!
