It’s part of my food addiction. I can’t help it, as much as, I try. It seems like I take all my frustration and anxiety out in food. The food does make me feel better for a short amount of time, but then I always regret it and feel worse about myself for eating when I wasn’t hungry. I often wonder what is wrong with me that I seem to feel my emotions stronger than most people and then try to beat myself up for reacting the way I do. Those of you who do the same things know exactly what I’m referring to.I do find a lot of comfort in journaling my feelings and trying to work out why I’m eating when I don’t want to eat, and what about nervousness and anxiety makes me eat uncontrollably. Maybe it’s when I feel out of control, maybe it’s when I can’t find the right emotion that triggered my nervousness, or maybe it’s something that I was born with, and I just have to learn how to manage it. I don’t have the answers to any of that. What I do know is that writing helps me. It helps me in so many areas of my life, and I want to share that with others. If I can help someone ease their nervousness by encouraging writing about feelings, etc, then I feel like I’m helping in some small way.These journal prompts and creative writing ideas were designed with the nervous eater in mind, starting with deciding if you are or are not a nervous eater and why.I hope you find them helpful.
