* … I’d like to show those who are still suffering that recovery is possible, that there is hope even on the darkest days.
Since I started my journey of recovery about a year ago, I have learned a lot about eating disorders and myself and I believe that I can help others even if it’s just a tiny little bit to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
I am writing about anorexia because seeing the progress that you, my lovely readers, are making is inspring me and motivating me to go even further. I am hoping to do my part in educating those who still believe that anorexia is some kind of lifestyle worth celebrating.
I am speaking up and adding my voice to the ever-growing list of people who stand up against the sick representation of women and men in the media and I am trying to make society see that we’re destroying each other by comparing us to standards that are unachievable for most of us.
It is important to break the silence and show the world that there is nothing sexy about looking emaciated. It is important for those who are caught in the hell of having an eating disorder to show you that there is a way out, even if it’s a rocky one.
I am just trying to spread the world about how amazing life can be if you’re free of all of these limiting thoughts and behaviors.
I am writing about eating disorders because you deserve to give yourself a second chance and if it is through this little blog, then I’ve done more than I could ever hoped for.
And last but not least, I am writing about eating disorders because it is simply too important NOT to talk about.
Every voice counts. Yours does too.
*I am participating in the first ever Hungry For Change Blogger Challenge. Throughout the entire month of May, I’ll write one post a day all about the topic of eating disorders.
