Humor is so important to survive difficult periods in life! It can be our savior, literally. It is also said that when you are able to laugh at yourself, it shows that you have reached a point in your development where you can more easily make changes or adjustments in your way of thinking or behavior which keeps you hostage in a circle of unpleasant recurring experiences.

You don’t have to be “at the fridge again” like the personage she is parodying!
So, instead of loving yourself through food only, instead of soothing yourself with food only, you could ask:
- Why do I actually feel hungry this time, at this hour?
- Why am I hungry again? I just ate a few minutes ago!
- What am I hungry for actually?
- What is it that I am trying to avoid by occupying myself with eating?
- What is it that I am really missing at this moment or recently?
- Am I thirsty or hungry for actually something totally different?
- Am I hungry because I don’t feed my body with nutritious food?
- Is my body really starving? Really, physiologically?
- Do I have a lack of real fuel and vitamins, minerals, enzymes, proenzymes, anything essential?
- Am I starving for security, gentleness, attention, appreciation, a good conversation, a good hearty laughter, a true friendship, sincerity in relationships, for a career change, or a change in your daily routine?
- Am I afraid of something, and can’t even find words for what is that I am afraid of?
- Am I afraid of putting into words the thing I am afraid of?
- Am I fed up with something, and just want to eat that feeling away?
- Am I hesitating to talk about something very important to me because I am anxious what will happen if I say it out?
- When I decide to eat anyway, am I eating what is actually good for my body and spirit? Do I know what is good for them anyway?
- Am I bored?
- Does hanging onto the fridge solve my issues, my problems, soothing my sighs, or do they keep coming back?
- Does it really serve my good whatever I piled up in my fridge?
- Do I munch on junk food, and do I top it with guilt and embarrassment?
- Where is this embarrassment coming from? Is it from a critical judge in me or my loving, caring all-knowing part in me?
- Do I feel the need for crunching, munching, chewing, or for swallowing, devouring, or engulfing? What can this tell me?
- Am I practicing my right to self-determination when I decide to eat in stress, when I choose to eat instead of thinking about solutions to a disturbing situation?
- It is great that I can laugh at myself and at others doing the same, but how long do I want to do this? When I am going to give myself permission not for another bucket of ice-cream, but to stand up for myself, to speak my truth, or start that new class I have been putting off, or just apply myself in a way that brings joy into my life?

Yes, there comes a time for all of us when we get hungry for a higher love, for a higher truth. When we get thirsty for something precious, something deep, something we may not be able to describe right now.
Yes, it may happen that one’s physical hunger will not dissipate, until he or she finds a quality, an activity, a some kind of sacredness to/in life and get in touch with the source of that higher truth.
