In reply to Sharing food with your therapist..., posted by stellabystarlight on August 23, 2008, at 12:38:33

I hadn't come across food sharing as a boundary crossing. I don't think it is, in and of itself. It's undoubtedly the feelings accompanying the food sharing that might constitute a crossing- i.e. a sense of increased intimacy, you perhaps assuming the role of a "good mother" who is giving her therapist/child something delicious to eat, shared food as a preliminary to making love, etc.

If you bring in wonderful things to eat, but never discuss what it means to you to do that, it could be considered a way of acting out intense loving feelings. Those feel so great in the short term, but could hinder you from your long-term goals.
