No one has recommended me before, or at least to my knowledge. So I feel very honored and just so happy that the internal acceptance movement has been able to help someone. That’s all I could ever want or ask for.
Thank you so much for your support and kindness. It means more to me than most people would imagine.
I’m very grateful.
I hope you have such a lovely day.
That is so sweet and meaningful to me. It made me feel very warm and fuzzy inside, and just so happy :)
This blog is my heart and soul and all my dreams and wishes combined into one. I’m so honored that it has been able to help in some some way. And so happy to share it with you and others.
Thank you for your support and kindness.

We truly are never alone. People hold in what they are going through because they fear being judged. We spend so much time comparing ourselves and finding differences, but in reality we are so similar. We all have the same basic needs and wants. We all want to be loved and heard and validated. We all have family issues and are on a journey toward self-discovery. We all often feel scared and lost.
Know that you are never alone.
It takes opening up and being vulnerable and taking that leap of faith to know that other people go through so many of the same things you do.
Know that you are not alone, not now, and not ever.
I’m so sorry for the pain you have had to go through. I’m so sorry for the hurt you have felt. But also know that our struggles don’t have to define us. Know that the pain doesn’t have to last forever. Know that change us always upon us. Know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and that we are the key to finding it. The light is within us, waiting to be released and felt.
I know this because I have been in the tunnel. I am in the tunnel and am making my way to the light and fighting the darkness that is our eating disorders, our “thin is in” culture, poor body image, and low-self esteem, and negative self-talk.
It’s starts with changing the way we think.
It starts with believing in ourselves.
It starts with us.
Sending you so much love and light,
Ps. Tell Emily I say Hi, and that I love and miss her. You are very lucky to have a friend like her. I wish you so much luck on your journey. Take care.
Thank you so much for your kindness, support, and encouraging words. It means a lot to me. I hope you know you are beautiful too, always.
Know that you are defined not by how you look but who you are and what you do. But the fact that you took the time to write such a kind message to a stranger like me. We forget how meaningful little messages like this can be, and in turn, they fill us up with warmth and light. That is what is validating—our ability to help others and make someone’s day. That is where we need to get our validation. Not by how much we weigh or how thin we look. Not by the amount of food we take in. But by the amount of love we give out.
That is beauty. And my dear, you have it :)
thank you so much,
Thank you very much for your support.
I’ve been in and out of treatment several times for more than a few years now. It’s a process, and one that requires optimism. I’ve only been in treatment for four days this time around, and have a long, long way to go, but I am determined. Each time I go in though, I find that the journey is easier.
I’m so grateful for the friendships I am already making and for the knowledge I’m gathering. It’s an experience that is difficult, but so, so worth it.
Recovery is the hardest thing any one who battles addiction will ever attempt to do, but I promise you, it is worth it. It is literally a life or death situation.
I choose life.
Anyone can live, but to be alive, takes, as you say strength and courage. It means being vulnerable and honest and taking risks.
It’s not easy, but it’s worth it.
I would rather live, every day of the week, than be with my eating disorder.
Thank you so much for your support. I hope you have such a wonderful night :)
