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!

Stop calling yourself stupid/lazy/fat/weak

All these words stupid, fat, lazy, ugly, weak etc etc i see people writing those things about themselves in emails several times a day. And it makes me so sad to know that such a lovely human being -i e all of you - think that of yourself.
    I've done the same thing, if you look at posts from 2010-2012 there is alot of that negativity.  Calling myself fat, ugly, horrible, better off dead etc etc but you have to realise that those thoughts aren't real. And voicing them - letting your ED control you so much that you talk so negatively about yourself just makes you feel worse.
If you ever got those thoughts that you are fat or ugly instead say out loud. No, I'm pretty, I'm perfect just the way I am. I don't need to change. Sounds silly i know. and of you're at work or in shool or in public you might not be able to just stop and say that out loud - though you could, that would be cool! :)
  But think those thoughts anyway. Challenge and fight your negative thoughts. Don't let the negative words and thoughts control you. Change the weak to strong (for recovery.  You ARENT being strong for choosing your ED), change lazt to being strong for resting, change fat to perfect just the way (you are. No matter what your weight or body size), ugly to perfect (just the way you are).

I believe that what you think you manifest and if you are always thinking negative and calling yourself and repeating these negative words and thoughts. They get stuck in your life, like a cd on repeat. They bring you down make you feel even worse. Instead think positive.... try to act positive. Smile. Sometimes you just have to fake it till you make it!

At times, it can help to write those words out...get them out of your thoughts. But then destroy or get rid of the piece of paper...i was the type of person who would keep those papers and look at them. As if i was validating those thoughts, giving them more power because i was seeing the written words.

But you wont ever feel better if you are slowly tearing yourself apart. Bringing yourself down. That wont help you in life at all....

Instead, learn to be kind to yourself. Stop calling yourself negative things!!!!
