Last year, after my breakup, I decided to continue therapy. Originally, I went because of my Binge Eating Disorder but as I kept repeating the same dating patterns over and over again I got sick of it and wanted to stop always making the same mistakes. Why did I always choose emotionally unavailable losers who can barely take care of themselves?
I spent New Year’s at home with my cat, watching romcoms and eating an absurd amount of protein bars because I didn’t get any sweets from the grocery store earlier that day. I stopped going out and partying on New Year’s ages ago because I always ended up drinking too much, making out with some random stranger or embarrassing myself in some other way. Staying in has become my new tradition and I love it.
