Good morning, dear friends! These images are to inspire all of you today. Especially those of you who are struggling with eating disorders and Body Dysmorphic Disorder, or any self esteem issue—whatever it is that your very being is wrestling with right now.
I want you to know that, as someone who has found recovery and been living it out for over 7 years, you can overcome the darkest of times, the worst of situations, and the struggles that you think there is no way out of–there is. There are tools & peer support to make it through. If you aren’t able or don’t feel like facing people in real life for support or groups, there are ones online, and forums for you 🙂
Here is my favorite website for our struggle. Its full of awesome things to help you through this. There is much to see and do:
This organization has: campaignd for prevention, improved access to quality treatment, and increased research funding to better understand and treat eating disorders. We work with partners and volunteers to develop programs and tools to help everyone who seeks assistance. *via the website
On the home page of this blog, at the top, there is a parent category called Eating Disorders & Recovery. There you will find my personal Recovery story, and maybe some things you can take with you on your own personal journey.
I hope this post inspires you in some way. That is my prayer.
God bless you in every way. You can do this. Remember, you are not over. Your heart is beating, and you are breathing, full of life. Your mission for this world has not yet been carried out. There are great things ahead for you beyond that wall… 🙂
