But what if "my situation isn't bad enough"...
You're strong, intelligent and fiercely independent.
Asking for help is not something you easily do. You might fear being a burden or being too needy.
So you typically try to figure things out for yourself, you're a DIY-er at heart.
And you have a pretty good life too..., a great job, a great relationship, awesome friends.
From the outside you seem to have it together, perhaps you're even known as the "healthy one".
And yet, you're struggling with food and weight.
You're relying on food to deal with emotions more than you care to admit.
Food always seems to be on your mind, you're either planning your next meal or figuring out how to make up for the last one.
You're constantly planning your life around your 2 hour workouts or your binges.
And for as long as you can remember you have wished you were thinner.
But you continue to tell yourself that your situation is not bad enough to ask for help.
It's not disordered enough.
You're not struggling enough.
You're not sick enough.
So you stay stuck.
But here is the truth... There is no such thing as not bad/disordered/struggling/sick enough to ask for help.
If you have an area of your life that you want to change then you are in a position where help is allowed, warranted, encouraged even.
Asking for help does not make you weak, but it does require you to be vulnerable.
And as Brene Brown has said "vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren't always comfortable, but they're never weakness.”
If you're struggling and want help, but find yourself thinking your situation "isn't bad enough"
..., here is your sign, it's time to ask for help.
