I really don’t know the answer to that question. Maybe the answer is, there is nothing that someone could have done to change my life. Maybe I needed to live my life and have these experiences to get me to the place I am at today. But maybe if someone had given me the permission to enjoy being physical with my body, I would have been doing that all these years instead of starting at 29 (with CrossFit). Maybe if someone helped me understand emotional eating, I would have looked at food differently. Maybe if someone had taught me to face my emotions in the present moment, I would have had the tools to deal with them. Maybe if someone had helped me to identify with my highest self, instead of the negative voices in my head (Mr. Gremlin!), I’d have been listening to the better voice all these years. Maybe if someone, had coached my parents on how they affected my behavior, would have understood I needed their support from a place of love, not fear.
