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!

Brunch with friends

Hello,
   For this year a goal of mine is to step outside of my comfort zone more. This is something i did alot of in 2014. I tried new things and tried to not hold myself back so much, but i think this year will be the year that i try to leave my comfort zone as much as possible. This is what is needed if i want to grow and experience new things. I cant just stay in my safe bubble and do what is comfortable all the time.
    As mentioned many times before i am an introvert and can be percieved as shy... i am generally not the person to take the first step or make contact, even if i want to. But this year i want that to change... i dont want fear to hold me back from meeting new people. So today i have decided to meet two girls which ive been talking to online......*wait for the reaction*...... and yes, i know you shouldnt meet people from online. Though its not just some random guy, so hopefully i will be ok. The thing i am most worried about is that it will be awkward, that we will sit there and just be like.... *help... i have nothing to say*. Though i am sure that wont be the case!!!




   
Even if i have a slight bit of anxiety... yes, meeting new people does spark a bit of anxiety within me i am looking forward to it.
   In the near future i think im going to meet 2 other girls who i talk to online as well, they love running as well so we said we might go running together. Which i am super excited for even if once again, meeting strangers(?) gives me a bit of anxiety. I guess i just dont want to make a fool of myself or have to deal with awkward situations!!!

Sooo.... now i need to get ready, drink another cup of coffee and then i'm ready to go :)

Have a lovely day all of you :)

  1. Hi Izzy!! :)
    I don't think anybody likes to step outside of their comfort zone, but we all have to do it at some point otherwise we'd never move on in life!! I think its courageous and brave what you are doing today, and i'm sure you will have a great time meeting the girls! :)
    Hope you have a really good day today :)

  2. Well done to you Izzy! You are a lovely person, so you have nothing to worry about! I was just wondering though, how have you come to meet these girls online? Only, I would like to find some people online that I have things in common with etc and don't know how or where to go about it! xx

    1. Thank you :)
      I met(?) them on Instagram and have commented on their photos and then we added each other on FB.
      You can try FB groups or Instagram or soo to find people who have similar interests... though it can be hard to find people in your area via sites like that!!
