Instead of saying you don't want to recover say, you don't care about your health.
Instead of saying you don't want to eat, say, that you don't care about the long term consequences of not eating properly.
Instead of saying that you can't recover say, you don't want to face your fears.
I wanted to write about the example of saying you don't have time, and instead saying it isn't a priority.... but the truth is sometimes there just isn't time and 24 hours isn't enough time to get everything done so yes, you do have to priortize certain things. But for some people they say they don't have time as an excuse when instead they should just say it's not a priority.
Just like when you say you don't want to recover, it's the same as saying you don't care about your health.... Because it does not matter how many vegetables you eat,how often you run or how much water you drink. If your body or mind are unhealthy or if you are struggling with an eating disorder you aren't healthy. Recovery and recovering is healthy but not choosing to recover is the same thing as saying that you don't care about your health.
If you don't want to eat because you have anxiety or you think it will make you fat.... you might as well just say it instead of "I'm not hungry" or "kve already eaten".... you might as well be honest and just say "I am scared this food will make me fat" and then see how you feel and what happens.
Think about the meanings of what you say and what you do.... they might just give you a reason to double think and maybe change ways?
