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!

Treat your body with respect

When you start thinking about your body like a friend and treat it with respect then you will have a much healthier body and mind.
Your body is not yours to abuse. You dont have a body so that you can hate it and want to change everything about it. Your body is your temple and you should treat it with respect. Not try to cut it, starve it, fill it with toxins and chemicals and ruin yourself from the inside out. When you think of your body in kinder ways and begin to treat it like it were your friend where you think kind thoughts, you compliment your body, you see the positives and disregard (or not even notice at all) those smaller differences. You feed your body right, give it water and sleep. Give it kindness and positive thoughts and positive energy. Because that is what you would do to a friend or your child - so why not treat yourself in the same way?

Why are you different? Why do you think its ok to bring yourself down? Let your mind bully you and control you. Why do you think its ok for you to try to harm yourself, to slowly kill yourself? There are rules and laws against other people hurting or killing others... but why do you think its ok because you are doing it to yourself? It is just as bad, if not worse because others can't see it. They might not be able to see those hidden scars or your true feelings hidden behind a smile. But that doesnt mean that you arent struggling.

It is not ok for you to hurt yourself, to starve yourself and slowly kill yourself. You wouldnt do that to a friend, so why do that to yourself?

Change your thoughts, change your behaviour. Learn to love your body like a friend, or like it was your child. Because you are going to live with your body for the rest of the life, so why spend all that time hating it when instead you could learn to love your body, change your thoughts to better ones and finally live a life where self hate and low self esteem arent dragging you down?
