If you ever want to emotionally eat, spend, or drink, just remember:
You react compulsively when you're scared. Scared to make moves in your life that would fill you up, that would truly nourish you in ways food and shopping can’t.
Fear is a part of life, and in order to break free from it, you must accept it. It’s through accepting your fear that you tap into the part of you that isn’t afraid. You become bigger than your fear and see how it’s just an evolutionary tool that's kept you and your ancestors alive. But when you're not in immediate danger, whatever you’re afraid of is a story in your head.
