It seems to me that exercise, and diets, and anything that has to do with body issues, has the potential to tap into a whole world of internal hurt. To throw us back into some kind of younger state and reopen old wounds and… yeah.
It’s good to be able to remember that the hurt is more about then than now. It’s good to be able to re-center oneself and recover. It’s good to actually be a grown up and not lost in that world of child helplessness.
And really, that’s all.
