Today I’d like to write about something really important, yet not well understood by every girl who struggle with eating disorder. I write this post, because it breaks my heart when I see girls who start some new diet, they lose weight, look worse, but there is no one who can help them.
At the beginning of almost every eating disorder there is this feeling of being not good enough. Not skinny enough. Not funny enough. Just not enough. So you start to starve yourself, or you restrict yourself, you work out like crazy every single day or you purge. And there is no one to tell that it’s not the solution. That you can’t do this forever.
But the purpose of this post is not telling you how the beginning of an eating disorder looks like, today I want to tell you something really important.
BEING SKINNY SHOULD NEVER BE YOUR GOAL.
Because being skinny doesn’t guarantee a happy life. A positive life. Life full of success, laugh, admiration and friends.
In out times the perfect body type is size zero, but how we all know the body type changes with time. There were many years when Marlyn Monroe’s body was a goal, today we rather admire Cara Delevingne’s silhouette. Body goals change and that’s why we shouldn’t care how we look or how many kgs we weigh as long as we’re not or we don’t feel unhealthy.
I hope that today you will stay in front of the mirror and tell yourself that you’re worthy, beautiful, strong and brave human being. Your body is amazing, because thanks to it you can move, run, laugh and do everything what makes you happy. The food is not your enemy, you need it to have energy to live. And being skinny is no longer your goal, because you choose health over self-hate.
