When I went into recovery, I thought I WAS my eating disorder. I thought that my identity was tied to my horrible illness. And yet, over time I learned that I was NOTHING like that beast that tortured me for such a long time.
However, at the beginning it is almost impossible to differentiate between yourself and Ed and it is extremely frustrating not to be able to fathom who is who. But it is not completely impossible, it just takes a bit of soul-searching, which is what we’re going to do today.
It is extremely important to find out who YOU are in order to let your eating disorder go. The stronger your sense of self becomes, the more confident you’ll be and the more strength and reason you’ll have to fight!
Take some time for yourself today and answer these questions. You’ll feel amazing afterwards and Ed will have no chance to take away your skills, talents, knowledge and awesome character traits away from you!!!
