Afraid of being thin.....25 answers to freedom!!!

Wednesday, February 20, 2008

I participate in a team called Done being the fat girl and a memeber posted an article about how a huge percentage of people have weigh loss issues because of the fact that there is a fear of being thin. It said to list 25 reasons why you are afraid, no less than 25. So here I go. I need to relase these fears, so that I can continue to be successful.

1. Afraid of loving myself
2. Afraid of being noticed
3. Afraid of being loved
4. Afraid of being a better mother
5. Afraid of being successful
6. Afraid of being expected to do more
7. Afraid of failing
8. Afraid of living a better life
9. Afraid of being independant
10.Afraid of proving all those people wrong in my life that have said I wouldn't amount to anything
11.Afraid of being a role model
12.Afraid of being me
13.Afraid of being free
14.Afraid of voicing my opinion
15.Afraid of being a positive person all the time
16.Afraid of being unstoppable
17.Afraid of being happy with my body
18.Afraid of letting go all that bitterness and anger I have accumulated in my life.
19.Afraid of being deserving
20.Afraid of being worth it
21.Afraid of change
22.Afraid of not knowing
23.Afraid of being strong
24.Afraid of being confident
25.Afraid of finding true and utter happiness

    I just read that post today, and wanted to check out your list. Thanks for sharing. Crazeee how so many of us are afraid of the good. Is that because we are so used to the negative in life?

    I read you other blogs about being gone. Wish you could find the time to log on to SP for a few minutes every few days. You and I know how much SP does for a person's positive out look. I will be praying for you to keep putting yourself as a priority in your life!!

    Your list really rings true for me. How powerful to see it here on the page. I often wonder to myself, "what's stopping me from losing weight? I have all the tools neccisary to move forward, and yet I feel so stuck." I think that being afraid is a huge part of it. Thank you for sharing.
