I'm working on recovery from an eating disorder among other things, and what it has come down to is that the emotional abuse from my childhood has left me feeling very small, insignificant, unworthy, etc. I feel like there is a big hole inside me longing to be cared for, because I never got that as a child. I need to work on filling that hole, healing the past... but I don't really know how to start to forgive that child within me, or even have compassion. I am still stuck on the idea that my child self let me down, because I wasn't strong enough to take things better, and I turned to an ed to cope. I have a therapist but I'm limited in seeing her... how do I begin this process? Has anyone else had any experience with it?
