Like Buffy, I want to grow up and marry Christian Slater.
Well, I did once upon a time.
I think a lot of people are afraid of it.
Afraid of the attention, afraid of the success, afraid to shed that layer of protection that fat provides - that buffer against the world.
A few will know exactly what I’m talking about.
It’s hard to let go of a lifetime of safety and comfort. When you dramatically change your body - you dramatically change your life and the way that the world perceives you, the way that you perceive yourself.
It is scary.
It is a hard decision to make. The dirty little secret is - it’s not a decision that you only make once. It is one that you have to make over and over and over again. Because on the road to success there will be moments when all of those fears raise up and overwhelm you. Usually triggered by other people and experiences out and about in the world. So you go and have a whole cheesecake, or whatever your weapon.. I mean food of choice is. And the world is safe again, you feel at peace. Then you feel like shit.
So you have to decide all over again to not let fear rule. To not let you stand in the way of your success. To not let society and even the most well meaning of those around you to get to you.
You will fuck up. You will make not so great choices.
Because then you get to decide, again, that you are stronger than your fears and then go prove it.
