I am leading a retreat in late summer for compulsive overeaters. The topic is "Live Your Dreams Without Drama."
As I was prayerfully considering how to be of maximum service to this group and allow the Spirit to move through me to touch the most lives, a course began to reveal itself.
The thing most addicts try to cover and hide from view is shame. Another word for that is vulnerability. We hate to be vulnerable.
The life motto of every HFA (highly functioning addict or alcoholic) I know is "Never let 'em see you sweat." I would add, "Never let 'em see you cry."
They say people teach what they most need to learn. My saying "yes" to every opportunity has taught me a lot.
I'm on a 90-day adventure to vulnerability. We're going to be talking about feelings, conforming, diet mentality, simple steps, and transformation.
Who's with me?
