Our feelings of disconnect lead to getting in touch with our vulnerability, which is difficult to tolerate.
Young babies especially feel vulnerable and cry often, only to feel soothed by being close to a parent and held for long periods of time. As we get older, we become more independent and move further away from mother’s protective arms and eventually away from her completely.
Soothing ourselves is now our responsibility, and if one hasn’t experienced and been taught emotional regulation from their parents, which is most everyone to some degree, then they cope in whatever manner they can, like eating.
““It’s funny how in this very advanced connected world everyone is so disconnected…”
