Sometimes it’s not the things we say, it’s the things we didn’t say! I didn’t tell myself stop it when I was over eating!
I didn’t recognize that I was actually forcing myself to eat more than I should, to make another person feel better about how much they had paid for dinner.
Our son had busied himself with a box of crayons and a piece of plain paper (he’s 25) and was coloring for a coloring contest. So, he wasn’t eating at all. The other young man who had come along with us (Tenor’s room mate) also was not eating. Not to worry… Amy Jo to the rescue!
The next time something like that happens, you better believe I’m going to be yelling “Stop it” at myself!
