Something very strange happened to me today. I was in the grocery store with my best friend, at least I consider her my best friend. We went out for sushi. I was sharing a conversation I had earlier that evening with my health coach. Well, after that we went to the grocery store. I'm standing there looking at these slices of cake and cheesecake. So, my friend goes...get one. I almost did. I picked it up, stood there, and put it back.
In those quick moments I thought about how disgusted and disappointed I was in myself. Then, I was disgusted and disappointed in my friend. How could she encourage me to get something like this when she knows I'm trying to be more healthy? I know her. She could care less. She'd just say it's my choice--and she's right. I have no one to depend upon on this journey but myself. I am solely responsible for myself. I'm the person who has to live in this body. I can be my best friend or I can be my enemy. I choose to love myself. Ultimately, the only best friend I have is myself.
