I love this quote from FireFly:
When you can’t run, you crawl, and when you can’t do that, you find someone to carry you.
It is so similar to the Martin Luther King Jr. quote that it could almost be considered plagiarism.
If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.
They are very similar except in ONE important thing, which makes the Joss Whedon quote better than the Martin Luther King, Jr. quote. “You find someone to carry you.” It’s a very important distinction because this disease of overeating thrives in isolation. The more you hide away from friends, family and work, the stronger it grows. You MUST have someone else there, especially when it gets so bad that you can’t crawl.
Don’t let this disease kill you slowly. FIND a friend to talk to about your eating problems. FIND a family member who understands and can help you. FIND a coworker you can trust. FIND someone to carry you.
