Holidays can feel extremely overwhelming if you’re recovering from an eating disorder or from chronic dieting. Why? Because they inevitably bring comments, direct/indirect judgement, and conversations that may be more harmful than helpful for your journey. While our family and friends may be well-intentioned, certain statements can feel triggering and take away from the actual meaning of holidays: reconnecting and JOY.
Your role in recovery, while difficult at times, is to advocate for your needs, communicate your triggers, and have a safety plan in place when tough conversations come up. The reality of recovery (and life in general) is that you may be faced with diet talk and body talk – FREQUENTLY. So, how can we best navigate these sorts of experiences? What are REALISTIC things we can actually say to our loved ones when their comments are in fact very triggering?
