"Outwardly, you’re a great friend, family member, partner, student, employee. You’re high-achieving, kind and dependable-a 'rock' for others. Inside, you feel anxious and drained from constantly chasing perfection and external validation-you never feel good enough, despite your best efforts. You use food, dieting, overachieving and people-pleasing to help manage your feelings and gain a sense of control over the world around you-especially now, when things feel so uncertain and sad. Only, these tactics take a huge toll on you. You're sick of spending so much time in your own head. You're ready to make a change-even if it feels scary."
