How anger affects emotional eating
“Anger is like water. No matter how hard you try to dam, divert, or deny it, it will find a way, usually…through your body, eating habits, and relationships.”
This is a quote from a book I have been studying this year with a handful of close colleagues and my mentor called, Rage Becomes Her: The Power Of Women’s Anger by Soraya Chemaly.
While I have come a long, long way in my relationship with my emotions (especially anger), I am still a student in the process.
However, it wasn’t until I started healing my emotional eating with focused intention that I honestly realized the magnitude I would go to bottle up my anger…
How much I would recklessly try to extinguish it (and therefore, myself) with food…
And how in doing so, it had corroded my relationship with my body and mind.
Back then, when I thought food was the only way to cope with this overwhelming world, I had the awareness that the beginning steps of my healing journey would require me to get back in touch with my emotions… to FEEL my anger… ugh.
But I was so, so scared.
I was frozen stiff that if I really let her rip, I would torch the entire town… and no one would make it out alive, including myself.
Or worse: I was petrified that someone would see or know I was angry, and then I would be shamed, ridiculed, and ostracized.
Long story short, this is exactly why I created the powerful process and tools (that I now teach my clients) called Digesting Emotions® and The Anger Flush™.
Having and using these tools felt like the safety net I needed, especially in the beginning.
Instead of fearing, ignoring, or eating my anger, I had tools I could reach for (no matter where I was or what was going on) to purge, process, own, and ultimately transform my emotional energy into personal power.
The more I used these tools, the more I experienced an increase in my self-esteem, self-worth, self-love, and body image.
And I see the same thing happen to each of my clients.
