Gratitude for 3-9-2013 and Facing My Fears

"Today I am grateful for the ability to face and accept my fears because once I fully face and accept them, they lose their power over me. I do not want to live a life of fear, I want to live a life of fulfilment".

I am afraid of men.My ex was severely abused as a child and he was abusive to me when we were married. Guess what, the men I dated after him were either abusive or controlling.  I have done a lot of work in this area but apparently not enough because it is still an issue for me. 

I have some guy friends and they truly are all very nice men. They are all married. I don't have any single very nice guy friends. I don't do anything to seek any out.  I don't want my past to repeat itself. So, this is one of the biggest reasons I overeat. My fat serves as a buffer from the outside world; in reality I am ruining my health.
