Most of us are acutely aware of our own flaws, weaknesses, and limitations. In the context of an eating disorder, some women fall into the trap of comparing themselves to others, excessively focusing on weight and appearance, having high expectations for personal achievement, and being constantly preoccupied with how they are perceived by others. Unfortunately, these efforts to gain acceptance, personal happiness, and success, often lead to difficultly in discovering and expressing their authentic selves.
This week Recreation and Experiential Therapies groups will focus on the benefits of being authentic which include greater personal integrity, genuine relationships, increased confidence to realize potential, and experiencing peace with oneself.
