Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

My life at the moment is completely different to how it once was. I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia and depression as well as struggling with self harm and overexercising. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
And since 2012 i have been declared healthy from my eating disorder.

I have been blogging for 7 years, and my whole journey is written in my posts. I now represent healthy and happiness. I want to show anyone struggling that it is possible to recover, no matter how hard it may seem.

I now blog about recovery, my life, veganism and positivity!

If you have any questions leave them in the comment section as i am much quicker at answering there, otherwise you can always send an email: lifewithoutanorexia@hotmail.com

Be happy and accept

Something i am very bad at, is seeing how wonderful things are.... seeing that things are good they way they are. I always realise it to late.
  Im always looking into the future, wanting things to change, wanting to change myself and my routines...
   But sometimes, i need to just be happy... to stop looking at the negatives... or what could be...instead focus on what is.
  Really, there's no point in asking, what if? What if i do this.. what if i dont do that. What if this.. what if that..? I like to just go with the flow...

Accepting compliments is just about the hardest thing....people tell me im pretty. i like to contradict them and tell them that im ugly... people tell me im smart, i just shrug it off...
  In the end, i'll end up not getting compliments... because who wants to give compliments to someone who always says against them, never agrees?
  
Im starting to accept compliments with a smile, thanking people and believing hte comments... why bring myself down? Poeple wouldnt lie to me, tell me i look good when really i dont?
  I mean, i dont tell someone they look good, when i dont think they do... ? it just doesnt seem right. But that might just be me.
  But then you can all know, that when i compliment, i mean it. :)

To be happy and accept, thats the way to live. To live in the now..

We should all try to find the positive things in life, and stop bringing ourselves down .Telling ourselves we're not worth it... we should believe in ourselves! Believe in our beauty and strength!!!
  Because we are all beautiful, no matter what our weight, size, shape, height... we're all unique and perfect the way we are!
