I remember when you left, I felt devastated. I had so many internal conflicts, I had to completely rewrite who I was. I remember in the middle of that rewriting, figuring out that one of the things that limited me was what I allowed myself to eat. Familiar flavors were *good* and everything else was *dangerous*. I watched myself react to something that way, and realized that it was unnecessary to think of any well prepared food as dangerous. These foods are eaten by many people every day. I was paying attention to my story about the new food, not to the flavor. In that moment, I realized flavor was just information. And suddenly I could eat anything. My wife didn't believe the change until I'd already been there about a month.

This is an empowering memory
