Are you eating because your stomach is buzzing, or just because it's one way to distract yourself from what life's little anxieties? Food should be loved, but not used as a means of avoiding feelings or dealing with emotions you'd rather not be having. Instead of picking up a pint of ice cream, ask yourself what you're so scared of. You feel much better, and your physical and emotional health benefit as well.

No one can help you if you never talk about your problems. You're reliable, and love feeling self-reliant, but it doesn't mean weakness when you confide in others -- on the contrary, the willingness to open up shows how much strength you have when it really counts.
