It really bums me out when girls/women don't love themselves. When they can't love themselves. I never knew how to love myself either.
I was just on twitter and saw the profile of an anorexic girl who was on day 10 of her latest fast. She had her shirt pulled up to show her ribs in a desperate attempt to prove her worth to the world. Maybe you know her. Maybe you are her. I was her for the first 25 years of my life. But I'm not that girl anymore.
I will no longer let the shape of my body dictate my self worth.
I will not let the weight of my body hold me back from enjoying this one shot I have at life.
I will not let the mirror decide whether or not I am good enough.
I will not feel guilty for feeding my body.
I will not hate my body. It has never hated me, despite the horrible things I have done to it.
I will not listen to that little voice inside of me who screams and screams not to eat.
I will pray that girl ends her fast tonight and ends it for good, even though she thinks that's the worst thing that could happen to her. It isn't.
It's not too late...
