How the “Bucket Check” works

I woke up this morning and felt “edgy”. I realized this after a few episodes of grouchiness. I went to my bucket chart and realized, my bucket labeled ‘Need to feel Accepted’ received a big dent yesterday as a friend had talked at length about how people would be happier if they just ‘made themselves workout’ as this would increase endorphins and make them feel and look better.

My friend didn’t take into account how I had just explained I have spent all my life learning to deal with eating disorders and accept my shape for what it is.

I realized the hurt this has caused me, and I started looking for ways to fill my ‘Need to be Accepted’ bucket. I will write later about how I started filling this low bucket of mine.
