DO YOU SEE WHAT I SEE?

Do you see what I see?

Life has many roadblocks and cycles. We often need to take time out to reflect, regroup and change directions. The author shares her journey and recovery from her eating disorder. The challenges and the bumpy roads are all shared in a unique and creative way. She presents a workbook that is honest, straightforward and will help everyone overcome not only eating disorders but other issues too. Each section provides and shares her struggles with stress, fear, ED behaviors, and more by allowing you to hear her story, take your turn and write your own as we all follow the roads to our own successes.

Imprisoned by Fear is part of section 2 and a real issue many have. She shares her story in the first part called My Turn so that readers get an understanding of what she experienced. “ It feels like I’m serving a life sentence for worry and control, and fear. Self-doubt imprisons me.” She continues by saying she is learning in recovery that taking one step forward, and then another, will lead her toward her goal of finding self-love , peace and balance. There is much more shared and then it’s Your Turn to author your own story using her thought questions, suggestions and taking that step.

She includes one titled Living in the Now and the one that many I’m sure will reflect on is Ouch!

She begins by explaining that she is sensitive to even the slightest things, her feelings easily hurt, and afraid to use her voice in case she insults someone. Then it’s your turn to express your thoughts and remember that recovery is about self-care. To speak her mind without fearing the consequences that follow and to be gentle with herself. There is so much she shares that everyone can learn from. For those overweight the section on The Evil Scale is quite important and do numbers define who she is or who you are? Check yourself out in a mirror and read Do you see what I see?

Would you draw a life size drawing of yourself? Would it be correct or disordered? Her art therapist asked her to do this and what it revealed is sent her in a better course.

How Dare You is a valuable chapter dealing with how to cope with the fear of being criticized, insulted and having your feelings hurt. Anxiety should not control your feelings need to be expressed, the endless debate that you have within yourself meaning between ED’s harassment and her desire and yours to heal. I love the section on What will you fill your tank with: Fear based, or Faith based. I did take my turn in several sections and learned about myself in many areas. The world is not an easy place to traverse at times and everyone feels loss, pain, sorrow, anger and much more but you can overcome it if you work at it, follow the suggestions made in this book and realize that nothing is insurmountable. The seesaw OF NEEDS AND Acceptance ,ATTENTION Guidance , Mirroring `Grief LOSSES, SUPPORT  LOYALTIES   AND TRUST, FUN AND MIRRORS,  and LISTENING  and Acceptance  AND MORE.

There are so many valuable lessons to be learned in so many areas including mental health, eating disorders and more. So, read this book slowly one section or area that interests you at a time. It’s a valuable resource for adults, young adults and children who have eating disorders, stress related problems, anxiety and much more. So, choose your concerns, read the author’s stories and take your own journey and at the end ask yourself:Do you see what I see? You’ll be amazed at the revelations and changes. Author Faith Elicia created a valuable, informative and creative resource filled with research, resources at the end and personal stories that will touch your heart. Hurdles ,obstacles and more after reading this book you are sure to succeed you won’t be stuck, you will learn more about patience and using section 9 to wrap it up and mean it! Listen to your heart and mind. Never go back just go forwards and the world will look brighter, the sun will shine on you and you will always be able to say: DO YOU SEE WHAT I SEE! I AM AMAZING!
