A Prayer for Eating, For Those Who Do Not Want To…

Open my eyes to understand:

that food is not a goad
to make myself work
or a whip
to punish myself.

that I am worthy to eat
whether I succeed or fail,
whether I feel good or bad,
pride or shame,
whether or not my work is finished,
even if someone is upset with me,
and when I am upset with myself.
