I’ve always been open when I've blogged, especially with this blog. I’ve often stated publicly that my self esteem ebbs and flows like the tide. Recently with my weight I’ve been a defeated man and I’m hurting. I plan to start counselling soon on this issue. This is for two reasons. Firstly because I believe my weight “problem” is influenced heavily from some deeply engrained behavioural and thought patterns. These patterns have been nurtured and embraced for many years. Secondly for those who don’t know I’m in my final year of a Dip. H.E. in Counselling and my course requires me to complete 20 hours of personal counselling. So it’s two birds with one stone as it happens. I can’t promise I’ll speak too much about it which, if I’m honest surprises me as I’ve never been shy before but there ya go… In the meantime thanks for your encouragement. I do tend to blog more frequently once this season passes. Who knows, that could be tomorrow when the tide comes back in.
