Do you have a Mr or Miss Anorexia?
Many of you may have read the Mr Men or Little Miss Books by Roger Hargreaves (©THOIP), how he portrayed emotions as people, Mr. Happy, Grumpy, Perfect or Miss Bossy or Neat: these lovable books demonstrated individual moods and roles. Disney’s film ‘Inside Out’ also gives you an understanding of your moods and how the mind works.
Now your moods and roles are in psychological terms: your sub-personalities.
Sub-personalities are created to hold your ‘lived experiences’ since you were born. All those psychical skills you learnt, e.g. writing, skipping etc all exist as different sub-personalities and some become dominant in your life as moods and roles.
Sub-personalities are always there but it takes you doing the skill which brings them out. Remember being told, ‘do something different, this will change your mood’! This is exactly right, when you do something different, you are changing sub-personalities!
So do you have this sub-personality a Mr or Miss Anorexia?
Unfortunately when you experience sadness or loss of control or adversity at a young age you may have created one, but it is only if there is repeated prolonged adversity that this one becomes stronger and stronger and eventually he/she can grow so strong that Mr. /Miss Anorexia takes over.
What can be done about it?
Did you know that you can meet and heal this part of you? There is a technique which allows you to do this in a gentle but powerful way. This formula is the result of over 20 years of my independent research. It is called the Your Envisioned Mind.
