Behavioral Dissonance; Roadblock Questions

by MB

In losing myself in my exploration of the sinews of my mind, I've found myself raising a number of questions that must be answered in order for my journey to progress. The majority are rooted in the undeniable dissonance presented to me by my thoughts and their obstinance. 

  1. What are you really afraid of?
  2. ( [Implied] If you're worried about gaining weight) how else can you feel powerful? What else can you choose to focus on?
  3. Think about individual and collective moments that you have spent worrying about weight and body image. What else could you have been spending your time on?
  4. What have you lost in this war with your body? What have you sacrificed? 
  5. Was it worth it?
