Your eating disorder is not your friend. Your eating disorder is your worst enemy. No matter what Ed/Ana/Mia tells you, it’s a lie. Eating disorders are inherently belittling, deceiving, mean creatures.
They promise you that everything will get better if you only listen to their sweet words, but in reality everything gets worse if you follow their path.
They paint a picture of perfection, glory and accomplishment that goes far beyond what every other human being can achieve. They make you feel superior. They more you feel in control. They make you cope with life.
What they don’t tell you is that there is not a nugget of truth in what they say.
They don’t tell you about the misery. They don’t tell you about death. They don’t tell you about the loneliness. They don’t tell you about all the horrible consequences of starving yourself.
They do not tell the truth.
Don’t believe what is going on in your head.
Claim your spot again.
Claim your voice.
Take over YOUR LIFE again.
Stop listening to the toxic voice of your eating disorder.
Life can be great. Life can be fun. Life can be lived without obsessing over calories and weight. It’s up to you to make that a reality.
You have the power. You have the strength. You can STOP the relationship with your eating disorder.
I believe in you.
I know you have power.
I know you are brilliant.
I know you are kind.
I know you have a lot to offer the world.
I know you have the strength to fight back and zone in on what is really going on in your life.
I know that once recovered you will have the most fulfilled, happy and healthy life; a life you’ve always dreamed out.
It’s time you start believing that too.
