Self-forgiveness for Mental Health: Overeating When Attending An Event




What is Self-forgiveness?
It is the process by which an individual forgives oneself for accepting and allowing self to separate from objective reality, releasing positive and negative value judgments such as good or bad, right or wrong, positive or negative - as subjective interpretations of reality regarding something or someone that leads to stability as breath. 

Forgiving Myself In Writing:

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to overeat beyond what my body needs - unaware of what food combination will spike my blood sugar, push it down or stabilize it, when attending a family event like  birthdays, anniversaries, holidays or a friend's event and eat tasty food, believing within my mind that since everyone is eating a lot i should also eat a lot and rave about how delicious the food is so the host and my friends will be pleased - unaware of what food really is,  so i can have fun with friends and family,  where within this, i am defining myself by what others do and figuring out in my mind how i can have fun and defining food within taste and entetainment rather than looking at the common sense of supporting the body through what food i take and how much of it i take so the body can have a stable blood sugar and enough nourishment while i enjoy my expression - as who i am, in an event, where friends and family support me for what i do that benefits the body, myself and others - which is what enjoyment is all about, enjoying that which benefits all, which in essence benefits me.

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to be defined by what others do rather than see the common sense of eating for nourishment.

I forgive myself that i have accepted and allowed myself to connect this event to a memory of:
1. An event of me eating a lot in 'fiestas' in the Philippines where there's so many food, laughter, fun etc.
2.A story of my dad inviting my mom's relatives in a feast when he was courting her which i connected to true love and which i also connected to fear of not finding someone within fear of being left alone with no one to love me, a subjective view of reality within bias.

Rewriting My Life:

I commit myself to when  i see myself believing that i have to eat more than what my body needs because i want to have fun when attending an event, where i copy what others do rather than see food as what it is (a source of nourishment) and use it for that purpose, in any kind of group event (carnivorous, vegetarian etc.) - I stop -  I breathe. 

blood sugar goes up and down even when we are eating fruits only or fasting.

I realize that i am not even aware of when my body have already enough nutrition that it needs when eating while attending these events because i am in my mind thinking about how to maximize the experience of having fun, so, to correct myself and assist the body, I will log my food intake and look at how much food i have to eat when eating in these events,  that will give the body a stable blood sugar rather than spike the body's blood sugar and eat using the data from my sugar log to commonsensically figure out when to stop eating -  either when i eat at home, at a family event, at a fiesta, birthday party,  anniversary, holiday or at a friend's event.

I commit myself to see 'food' for what it is - a substance that can provide nourishment for the body and release the definitions i attached to it  from my mom through a memory that is connected to a fear .

I commit myself to assist in creating a world that gives guaranteed survival for all so all can afford to buy food and other basic necessities to support the body for optimum survival.
