I don't much like raw onions...but I do like onion rings, I like green onions, and I also like onions when they're cooked
I love pickles!! but I don't like relish...and I don't like all kinds of pickles...just a few
My daughter hates tomotes (with a passion)...but she's gaga for ketchup
I don't like pork chops...but bacon? I'm coming! and I'll bring the sausages too
Now I'm not meaning to make you hungry...there is a point to all this...
We may not always "like" everything that comes into our lives...but there are things we can like, even love...just like food.
And just because you may not like something about a certain kind of food doesn't mean you stop eating right? right! you just eat the things you do like. Notice how that could be just like life too? We may not like everything that comes into our lives...but does that mean we stop living? NO!
You don't like that you hurt...but what can you find in your day today to help you love and appreciate your life?
I love pickles so I eat them...I don't like relish so I don't eat that. I don't like that I feel some level of pain every day...but I love my life. Can you see what I'm saying?
Just like your foods...just like your life...you're going to come across things you don't like, but you don't stop eating because of it...just like you don't stop living. You focus on the things you do like...and you eat and live those things instead.
We may not like all the ways things can be and even are...but that does not mean we can't find and live for the things we do like.
Just my simplified opinion....
leave it to a food addict to relate a life growing point to food...but it's true
