ARE U OK? http://geni.us/sva4iUY
In this video I address a topic that plagues a lot of people with eating disorders as well as those without. The need/pressure to be "perfect." This pressure, whether it comes from inside or outside of ourselves can drive us to do very damaging things. I talk a lot about "living life in the grey" and not in the black and white. This means that when we try something new, or do something we've been doing for years, we commit to it in an extreme way. Then, because we are all humans, we cannot keep it up at that pace and we "fall short" of our "perfect" expectations and then we end up feeling bad about ourselves. This continues over and over just like the cycle of binge eating and other ED behaviors. In order to stop this cycle from continuing, we need to practice moderation. To be clear, I do not mean slack off and fail a class or lose your job, I just mean create some healthy boundaries. When you are exhausted and your body aches, don't go to the gym. When your boss calls you at 8pm, don't pick up. When that "toxic friend" calls you at a really inconvenient time, let it go to voicemail. We don't have to be perfect all the time. Just being you is more than enough. Let your true self shine and let's stop letting others dictate our lives and stress levels. Let's start being okay with less than perfection.
