Let Go

“Letting go of my eating disorder was the hardest thing I have ever done, but by far the best thing I have ever done.
.
For so long I believed my eating disorder was making me feel better and whilst at first it did, in the end it isolated me from everything that was important. I lost friends, my job, my hobbies…all for nothing really. I would like to say to anyone suffering that life is SO much better on the other side. Recovery is hard, but is worth every tear you will shed. I now look forward to everyday and I’m able to see the beauty in the smallest of things.
.
You have to let go, bit by bit…challenge yourself and your thoughts daily. You deserve to live a life that is fulfilling in body, soul and mind. I’m so thankful that I no longer need to starve myself to deal with my feelings. I don’t beat myself up if I screw up. I’m kind to myself and in turn am kind to others. Don’t waste another moment of your life. You are precious and have so much to give”.
