Oh dear…I’ve heard those words come out of my mouth before. Really, I have!!!! And I know how much it hurt, how much truth it had behind it.
But I promise you that you’re not worthless. I know that if you left this earth I would be heartbroken. And I’m not just saying this because I feel like it will make you feel better. People have said it to me and I haven’t believe them. I didn’t wanna! I just wanted the pain to end. I would be sad because this ISN’T YOUR FAULT. You can heal, you can recover all on your own, but this sadness, this worthless feeling is not your fault. You never woke up one day and went YOU KNOW WHAT, I THINK I’M GONNA BE DEPRESSED TODAY! Nobody does that. So I’d be devastated to see the cruel side of this world take another victim.
I’d be heartbroken to see another strong person taken from this world. Please, you’ve made it this far. You’d be making this world a weaker place without your beauty and strength. Please stay.
why yes I did eat three meals AND a snack today, thank you very much
Never tell anyone to just “get over” whatever emotion they may be experiencing. That emotion will constantly be there if they don’t work through it. You don’t just need to get over things, you need to get through them. Don’t let your emotions drag you down any longer. Rise above them. You are stronger. Get through it, and move on, be a healthier happy you.
One year of freedom.
One year of recovery.
One year of fighting.
One year God’s healing.
One year free from cutting.
Thank you, Jesus. Your power has gotten me this far, and will get me even farther.
I cannot wait to say I’m two years clean on December 5th, 2014.
Congratulations, sweetheart. You are a huge inspiration.
I was told it was unlikely I would live for more than a year because of how gripped I was to my anorexia, and now here I am, still fighting for recovery but at a healthy weight and I have a far better mind set.
It really is possible to recover, no matter what people tell you, there is nearly always a chance. Believe in yourself and love yourself, trust me, it’s worth it.
Sweetheart, you are such an inspiration. Its people like you that helps me believe that even in the hardest of times, I can make it through. Thank you.
