Living in the Big Apple in my 20s, there was always a party to be had. But there was one party where I was the sole invitee, surrounded by my choice of sweet and savory items: the BINGEFEST.
These soirees would mainly occur in the office, late at night, working against tight deadlines and hating my job. Instead of acknowledging my feelings, I threw a Bingefest in my Times Square office. I never knew who was going to show, since I was at the mercy of an escort service — otherwise known as the vending machine. These Bingefests were a nationwide event, as I participated in them while traveling for work, accompanied by whomever was at the hotel minibar (cashews, gummi bears, mini Snickers).
When I found energy work, it grounded me and I realized the secret hosts of my Bingefests were stress, anxiety, perfectionism, and wanting to feel in control of something because internally I felt completely out of control.
