A Course in Weight Loss Day 27 Lesson 17 Part 3

We are still on lesson 17 because Lizabeth is having a lot of resistance to this one. We try to figure out why she has resistance to the forgiveness.

I think Lizabeth knows that once she forgives and forgets, she’ll have to let go of her son. She agrees, but feels there is something final to this which is just too hard. We explore the different ways to look at this situation and talk about how hard it is to let go. It just sucks, but we can turn this into a positive thing by letting go of the old hurts to make way for new relationships.

We also talk about teaching our kids to find their own happiness and not sacrifice it for anyone – even Mom. We teach them this by example – we must be happy and not sacrifice our happiness for others.

Lizabeth discusses how she’s dealt with her eating during this stressful time.

  1. Vivian Miller says

    My Course lesson today was “Forgiveness is my function as the light of the World.” I know that holding on blocks my awareness of my blessings and it is essential that I be about the work God has for me to do and also his desire that I have lavish happiness.

    Lisabeth, everyday in every way I see you getting better and better. Some boys need male energy at certain ages. You will move to a sense of peace when you’re ready and not a minute before. Support is here for you. Take as much time as you feel you need. I think since you are not covering feelings with food you are feeling this naked which makes it seem more difficult. Don’t know the age of your son, but he is at a stage where he thinks he knows better than you. It just takes time. Keep stroking.

    My food is getting better and better.

    • Naked is exactly what I have been feeling. My nerves feel exposed, my emotions on my sleeve and my patience worn thin. I am getting better everyday. My son is 11 and he is just now starting to try and assert his independence. I am growing through this one step at a time. I appreciate your thoughts so much. You are a constant source of encouragement and love and I am so appreciative of you. Thank you Vivian!
