Enjoy your meal in your own pace and on your own terms
To be fed by another person can be problematic in several ways:
The person feeding you must be empathetic and able to adjust to each individual pace.
To be fed can be experienced as something very intimate. Even small children usually want to decide what to eat and when.
Some may experience less dignity as they may not feel equal to other people around the dining table from a social perspective.
It can be difficult to participate in conversations and integrate with others whilst being fed. There are fewer opportunities for private conversations during dinner with for instance friends or a partner, as an assistant is always present.
Some people are able to eat independently, but they use so much energy that they are unable to participate in any other activities.
To be fed can sometimes make it difficult swallowing depending on pace and feeding method.
