I feel like a lot of anti-thinspo blogs can be quite cut off from the people that have eating disorders so I just felt like saying:
- You are wonderful whether you’re recovering or not
- Your choices do not define you
- There is nothing shameful about hating yourself
- There is nothing shameful about the fact that you may not be able to recover right now
Yeah, eating disorders are dangerous but we all know that. I don’t know about anyone else but every day when I was doing these destructive things I was thinking about what I was doing. I knew what would happen but it didn’t stop me.
You can’t make someone recover from an eating disorder by telling them how unhealthy they are.
So I guess I just wanted to say that you are valid. I’m not saying anything new here but it’s just been nibbling at me for a while.
