I'm going celibate.
Are you a relationship girl?
Do you always have a love interest on the go?
Does your happiness depend on your love life?
If thats you.. I can really relate.
Most of my motivations to lose weight and be more attractive came from a longing to be seen and desired by other people.
This means that my relationship with food was just a symptom of a deeper, emotional struggle and a feeling of being inadequate.
The reason I write this today is because my struggles with food and body image were part of my self-development journey and my pathway to feeling more empowered as a woman.
That means, I am not just here to talk to you about food and bodies- but about finding your inner strength too. This is a journey that I have been on for years and am still walking on.
Me and my 2 friends Christina & Meredith decided to pursue celibacy 2 weeks ago... you may have seen we started a podcast about our journey.
I'm not just talking about the physical part of celibacy- it's more for us about the emotional aspect.
Too much of our energies are being taken up by the opposite sex... even though not one of us is ready for a new relationship.
Having just come out of a 4.5 year relationship, I have a lot of digging deep and self-work to do because I really have a fear of being alone.
I feel a lot of safety when I have a partner- I feel secure, I feel desired and I feel connected. I want to be able to provide myself with these things so that when I am ready, I choose the right person for the right reasons- not just because I'm lonely.
Tbh, I am really excited for this. I've grown more and more in love with myself as I have been on this journey and I am loving giving myself all the energy I have. It's not been easy... and I have to keep reminding myself why I am doing this!
If this is something you have been thinking about.. why not join us on the journey? We will be releasing weekly podcasts (the first one came out on valentines day 🤣)
