Dear Brain Dumpers,
It feels good to be back in the site again after a long hiatus. Feels so good that I’m using this anonymously and that. Feels good that I can write about things without being judged.
So, I started reading this book called Your Beat Year Ever. The book says that people who talk or write about their negative experiences have report “improved life satisfaction and enhanced mental and physical health relative to those who merely thought about it.” Writing about my negative experiences is a big part of what I do on this blog. It helps me to process my emotions and, more importantly, to create actionable responses to the negative experience. So let’s do it, penises.
There’s a lot to complain about recently that I haven’t really processed. It’s mostly about my dad and my sister. Regarding my dad: I feel like he doesn’t support my weight loss plans. Every time I tell him that I’m not going to eat or that I’m trying not eat a certain thing, he pretty much scoffs. I guess it might be a chore to keep up with my Ever-changing diets . . . So I understand if he gets fed up. But, I’ve been losing weight for 1 year now and I’ve lost over 30 pounds. That means I’m doing something right. If I need to change the diet intermittently to keep my progress going, then I should be able to do that without facing resistance from him.
I don’t actually know why he scoffs, I’m just guessing that he’s getting frustrated with the frequent changes. It could be that he’s just a negative person that scoffs at any type of self-improvement goal. But I don’t know his position on self-improvement or weight loss because he doesn’t really stick to his positions or attitudes. He’s moody and his positions will change based on his moods. Like an emo kid running for office.
What can I do about it?
I can just get good at politely refusing food with deference. I’ll be really polite. My stepmom supports me so I think he’ll come around when I establish a pattern.
I’ll writer about my sister in another post.
