Leslie Davis- You Can't Eat Love
Leslie Lindsey Davis is the author of the book "You Can't Eat Love" where she shares the lessons she learned on a journey to learn to love herself. Part of the work was finally dealing with the ungrieved loss of her mother decades before.
Leslie learned how to name and honor the emotions that she had kept shoving down. It was not until she began to confront the emotions, especially the grief that she was able to set aside her 'drug of choice' - food.
Her least favorite phrase as it relates to grief is "you'll get over it" followed quickly by "aren't you over that yet?" As part of her journey, Leslie lost over 100 pounds when she learned the art of self-love and how to process her grief properly. Her book helps others learn these same lessons. How do you heal in a world that wants to keep moving forward and doesn't want to hear about your pain?
