It’s been so long since I last posted I forgot my word press password. Good thing it’s automatically saved.
You probably haven’t missed me because blogging is so fetch right now that I’m sure you have an over abundance of material to read. I give serious kudos to those bloggers that post every day. Like, hook me up with some of your creative juices.
I’m not saying that I’ve lost my edge, I just feel like I have nothing to write about anymore. The main reason I began blogging was so that I could focus my time on something other than my ed. Turns out focusing on writing about my ED ending up being the most helpful tool in my recovery. This is not me saying good-bye to blogging, but it is me saying good bye to my demons for good as they no longer haunt me.
To those readers, who read my blog looking for help/support/inspiration on ED topics, if I could give you one piece of advice it would be to take everything you read on the internet with a grain of salt. Including this blog, in fact. I can’t tell you how many times I was mislead by so called “experts” on instagram, or became infatuated with someone’s recovery/health/fitness story and tried to mimic their every move. Guess where that got me? Absolutely no where, most times it brought me to a state even worse then when I started.
I thought about writing about a whole post updating y’all on my current life situation but I feel like that wouldn’t do anyone any good, how do you even know I am telling the truth? I will say life is so good right now. I never thought I would stop obsessing over food and I never thought I would truly be able to love my body but I did and I do. And the only person I have to thank is myself. I’m not going to sit here and tell you that you will feel this way one day because I don’t know if you will. The odd’s are against us. Skinny is cool, health is the new black and followers on instagram is the new famous. I do however, believe that everyone has the power inside to get better.
Thank-you to everyone who read my thoughts and took the time to show their love and support. My heart goes out to everyone that struggles with body image. Don’t struggle in silence and don’t be afraid to ask for help, we all need it sometimes ♥
PS- you’re beautiful, yes YOU.
